Ahaziah


Held by Jehovah. (1.) The son and successor of Ahab. He followed "the counsels of his mother Jezebel, and imitated in wickedness" the ways of his father. In his reign the Moabites revolted from under his authority (2 Kings 3:5-7). He united with Jehoshaphat "in an attempt to revive maritime trade by the Red Sea, which" "proved a failure (2 Chr. 20:35-37). His messengers, sent to" consult the god of Ekron regarding his recovery from the effects "of a fall from the roof-gallery of his palace, were met on the" "way by Elijah, who sent them back to tell the king that he would" never rise from his bed (1 Kings 22:51; 2 Kings 1:18). "(2.) The son of Joram, or Jehoram, and sixth king of Judah. "Called Jehoahaz (2 Chr. 21:17; 25:23), and Azariah (2 Chr." "22:6). Guided by his idolatrous mother Athaliah, his reign was" "disastrous (2 Kings 8:24-29; 9:29). He joined his uncle Jehoram," "king of Israel, in an expedition against Hazael, king of" Damascus; but was wounded at the pass of Gur when attempting to "escape, and had strength only to reach Megiddo, where he died (2" Kings 9:22-28). He reigned only one year.
