URIJAH

(yoo ri' juh) Personal name meaning, “flame of Yahweh.” Variant spelling of Uriah. 1. Chief priest who complied with Ahab's order to build an Assyrian-style altar for the Jerusalem Temple (2 Kings 16:10-16). Ahab likely hoped the incorporation of foreign elements into Israel's worship would impress the Assyrian king Tiglath-Pileser with his loyalty. 2. Prophet who joined Jeremiah in preaching against Jerusalem. When king Jehoiakim ordered his execution, Urijah fled to Egypt. He was, however, captured, returned to Jerusalem, and executed (Jeremiah 26:20-23).
