Till He[Uzziah] Became Strong

2 Chronicles 26:5, 15He[Uzziah] continued to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding through the vision of God; and as long as he sought the LORD, God prospered him. … his fame spread afar, for he was marvelously helped until he was strong.

Uzziah was marvelously helped, as long as he sought the LORD. But when he became strong, his heart became proud. Pride was Uzziah’s undoing.

But when he became strong, his heart was so proud that he acted corruptly, and he was unfaithful to the LORD his God, for he entered the temple of the LORD to burn incense on the altar of incense. -2 Chron 26:16

He usurped the priests’ duties and became a leper(v16-21).

When all goes well and I feel strong,
Oh, help me, Lord, to see
That I must place my confidence
In You and not in me. —Anon.

From NetBible 2 Chron 26 the word Uzziah[05818] means “my strength is Jehovah”! His father’s name Amaziah[0558] means “Jehovah is mighty” and his mother’s name Jecholiah[03203] means “Jehovah is able”.
