    Remaliah in Easton's Bible Dictionary adorned by the Lord, the father of Pekah, who conspired successfully against Pekahiah (2 Kings 15:25, 27, 30, 32, 37; Isa. 7:1, 4, 5, 9; 8:6).

    Remaliah in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Father of the usurper Pekah (2 Kings 15:25-37). Isaiah (Isaiah 7:4-9) designates the usurper as "the son of Remaliah," to mark that, belonging to a family alien from David's, to whom alone God promised the kingdom, he cannot succeed against the heir of David.

    Remaliah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE rem-a-li'-a (remalyahu, "whom Yahweh has adorned"): The father of Pekah (2 Ki 15:25 ff; Isa 7:4 ff; 8:6). The contemptuous allusion to Pekah as "the son of Remaliah" in Isa 7:4 (similarly "the son of Kish," 1 Sam 10:11) may be a slur on Remaliah's humble origin.

    Remaliah Scripture - 2 Kings 16:5 Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to war: and they besieged Ahaz, but could not overcome [him].
