A contracted form of Azari’ah the Lord is my strength. (1.) One “of Amaziah’s sons, whom the people made king of Judah in his” father’s stead (2 Kings 14:21; 2 Chr. 26:1). His long reign of “about fifty-two years was “the most prosperous excepting that of” “Jehosaphat since the time of Solomon.” He was a vigorous and” “able ruler, and “his name spread abroad, even to the entering in” “of Egypt” (2 Chr. 26:8, 14).

The father of Jehonathan, one of David’s overseers (1 Chr. 27:25).
