Azariah

Additional Links

Azariah (ăs-a-rî'ah), whom Jehovah helps. 2 Kings 14:21. There are 24 persons of this name mentioned in the Old Testament. The most distinguished of them was Azariah (called also Uzziah), the son and successor of Amaziah, on the throne of Judah. He was, in many respects, an excellent king; but, being elated by his prosperity, he aspired to execute the office of a priest, and to offer incense in the temple. In this he was resisted by the priests, and while enraged by their interference, the leprosy broke out upon his forehead, and remained upon him until the day of his death; so that he was obliged to spend the latter part of his life in solitude. 2 Chronicles 26:21.
