JOTHAM. 1. A king of Judah in the time of Isaiah. His father was afflicted with leprosy, and Jotham had some sort of regency before becoming sole ruler ( 2 Kings 15:5 ). We know nothing of him except that he rebuilt or ornamented one of the gates of the Temple ( 2 Kings 15:35 ), and that the hostilities which later culminated in the invasion of Judah began before his death ( 2 Kings 15:37-38 ).

2. A Calebite ( 1 Chronicles 2:47 ).

H. P. Smith.
