King of Israel.[1] This man was pious and being prosperous became overconfident and losing his good sense wanted to offer incense to God himself on his own behalf, which only the priests were permitted [to do]. And when he had offered incense in the Temple, immediately he became leprous. [...] For the leprosy rose on his forehead in the house of the Lord; and it drew him down[2] from there.
