(pehk' uh hi' uh) A personal name meaning, “Yah has opened his eyes.” King of Israel 742-740 B.C. He succeeded his father, Menahem, as a vassal of the Assyrian throne (2 Kings 15:23 ). The tense political situation he inherited was very hostile, as the loyalists and rebel zealots vied for control. Pehakiah's uneventful reign ended when he was assassinated by an army officer, Pekah (2 Kings 15:25 ), who was supported by Syria and opposed to the Assyrian domination. See Pekah .
