Zachariah (zăk'a-rî'ah), remembered by Jehovah. 1. Son of Jeroboam II., fourteenth king of Israel, and the last of the house of Jehu. There is a difficulty about the date of his reign. Most chronologers assume an interregnum of eleven years between Jeroboam's death and Zachariah's accession, b.c. 772-1. His reign lasted only six months. He was killed in a conspiracy of which Shallum was the head, and by which the prophecy in 2 Kings 10:30 was fulfilled. 2. The father of Abi or Abijah, Hezekiah's mother. 2 Kings 18:2.
