elder than Joash. After Azariah in that genealogy are six
generations, ending with Elishama; and from Joash to

Azariah in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(whom the Lord helps) a common name in Hebrew, and
especially in the families of the priests of the line of
Eleazar, whose name has precisely the same meaning as
Azariah. It is nearly identical, and is often confounded,
with Ezra as well as with Zerahiah and Seraiah. The
principal persons who bore this name were--
1. Son of Ahimaaz. 1Ch 6:9 He appears from 1Ki 4:2
to have succeeded Zadok, his grandfather, in the high
priesthood, in the reign of Solomon, Ahimaaz having died
before Zadok. (B.C. About 1000.) [AHIMAAZ]
2. A chief officer of Solomon's, the son of Nathan,
perhaps David's grandson. 1Ki 4:5

Uzziah. 2Ki 14:21; 15:1,6,8,17,23,27; 1Ch 8:12
4. Son of Ethan, of the sons of Zerah, where,
perhaps, Zerahiah is the more probable reading. 1Ch 2:8
5. Son of Jehu of the family of the Jerahmeelites,
and descended from Jarha the Egyptian slave of Sheshan. 1Ch
2:38,39 He was probably one of the captains of hundreds in
the time of Athaliah mentioned in 2Ch 23:1 (B.C. 886.)
6. The son of Johanan. 1Ch 6:10 He must have been
high priest in the reign of Abijah and Asa. (B.C. 939.)
7. Another Azariah is inserted between Hilkiah, in
Josiah's reign, and Seraiah who was put to death by
Nebuchadnezzar, in 1Ch 6:13,14
8. Son of Zephaniah, a Kohathite, and ancestor of
Samuel the prophet. 1Ch 6:36 Apparently the same as Uzziah
in ver. 24.
9. Azariah; the son of Oded, 2Ch 15:1 called simply
Oded in ver. 8, was a remarkable prophet in the days of King
Asa, and a contemporary of Azariah the son of Johanan the
high priest, and of Hanani the seer. (B.C. 939.)
10. Son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah. 2Ch 21:2
11. Another son of Jehoshaphat, and brother of the
preceding. 2Ch 21:2

13. Son of Jeroham, one of the captains of Judah in
the time of Athaliah. 2Ch 23:1
14. The high priest in the reign of Uzziah king of
Judah. The most memorable event of his life is that which is
recorded in 2Ch 26:17-20 (B.C. 810.) Azariah was
contemporary with Isaiah the prophet and with Amos and Joel.
15. Son of Johanan, one of the captains of Ephraim
in the reign of Ahaz. 2Ch 28:12

Hezekiah. 2Ch 29:12 (B.C. 726.)
17. A Merarite, son of Jehalelel, in the time of
Hezekiah. 2Ch 29:12
18. The high priest in the days of Hezekiah. 2Ch
31:10,13 He appears to have co operated zealously with the
king in that thorough purification of the temple and
restoration of the temple service, which was so conspicuous
a feature in his reign. He succeeded Urijah, who was high
priest in the reign of Ahaz.
19. Son of Maaseiah who repaired part of the wall of
Jerusalem in the time of Nehemiah. Ne 3:23,24 (B.C. 446-
20. One of the leaders of the children of the
province who went up from Babylon with Zerubbabel. Ne 7:7
21. One of the Levites who assisted Ezra in
instructing the people in the knowledge of the law. Ne 8:7
