Amoz in Wikipedia
(Hebrew: אמוץ amotz; "strong") was the father of the prophet
Isaiah, mentioned in Isaiah 1:1 and 2:1, and in II Kings 19:2,
20; 20:1. Nothing else is known for certain about him.
There is a Talmudic tradition that when the name of a
prophet's father is given, the father was also a prophet, so
that Amoz would have been a prophet like his son. Though it is
mentioned frequently as the patronymic title of Isaiah, the
name Amoz appears nowhere else in the Bible. The rabbis of the
Talmud declared, based upon a rabbinic tradition, that Amoz
was the brother of Amaziah (אמציה),the king of Judah at that
time (and, as a result, that Isaiah himself was a member of
the royal family). According to one tradition, Amoz is the
"man of God" in 2 Chronicles 25:7-9, who cautioned Amaziah to
release the Israelite mercenaries that he had hired.
