Hebrew - Ahaziah, Ahaziah's to Ahaziah

(ay huh zi' uh) names two Old Testament kings, the king of Israel (850-840 B.C.) and the king of Judah (ca. 842). The name means, “Yahweh has grasped.”

1. The son and successor of Ahab as king of Israel (1 Kings 22:40). He reigned two years and died after suffering a fall in his palace at Samaria (2 Kings 1:2-17). The prophet Elijah announced Ahaziah would die because he sent for help from Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, instead of from Yahweh. 2. The son and successor of Jehoram as king of Judah (2 Kings 8:25). He reigned for one year and died after being wounded as he fled from Jehu while visiting King Joram of Israel (2 Kings 9:27). These two kings were related to one another. Athaliah, the mother of Ahaziah of Judah, was the sister of Ahaziah of Israel. So, Ahaziah of Israel was the uncle of Ahaziah of Judah. See Israel and Chronology of the Biblical Period .
