Matter-of-fact, he loved the land so much that he planted crops and vineyards all though out the land of Judah and dug wells for all of his livestock. He was a very successful king. However, after Zachariah, the prophet died--Uzziah begins to "CHANGE."  His FAME, SUCCESSES and FORTUNE goes right to his head.  He becomes arrogant and full of PRIDE.  HE makes a BIG mistake when he entered the temple and  offer incense upon the altar.  THIS was WRONG.  The priest tried to stop him...but, his PRIDE got in the way....GOD punished him and he was cursed with leprosy.
