ZECHARIAH . 1 . Brother of Ner and uncle of Saul ( 1 Chronicles 9:37 ); called Zecher in 1 Chronicles 8:31 . 1 Chronicles 8:2 . A son of Meshelemiah ( 1 Chronicles 9:21 ; 1 Chronicles 26:2 ; 1 Chronicles 26:14 ). 3 . A Levite musician ( 1 Chronicles 15:18 ; 1 Chronicles 15:20 ). 4 . A priest in the time of David ( 1 Chronicles 15:24 ). 5 . A Levite, of the family of Kohath ( 1 Chronicles 24:25 ). 6 . A Levite, of the family of Merari ( 1 Chronicles 26:11 ). 7 . Father of Iddo ( 1 Chronicles 27:21 ). 8 . One of the princes of Judah in the days of Jehoshaphat ( 2 Chronicles 17:7 ). 9 . A Levite, one of the sons of Asaph ( 2 Chronicles 20:14 ). 10. Son of Jehoshaphat ( 2 Chronicles 21:3 ). 11. Son of Jehoiada the priest ( 2 Chronicles 24:20 ). After Jehoiada’s death, Zechariah reproved the idolaters and announced God’s judgment against them. He was stoned with stones at the commandment of the king in the court of the house of the Lord. His dying words, ‘The Lord look upon it and require it,’ were long remembered. See also Zachariah (No. 9). 12. A prophet, living in the earlier part of Uzziah’s reign ( 2 Chronicles 26:5 ). 13. Son of Jeroboam II. ( 2Ki 14:29 ; 2 Kings 15:8 ; 2 Kings 15:12 ). See next article. 14. A man of high repute in Isaiah’s day ( Isaiah 8:2 ). When faithful witnesses were required to attest a solemn prophetic roll, this Zech. was chosen along with Uriah the priest. He is described as son of Jeberechiah, and may possibly be the same as the Asaphite mentioned in 2 Chronicles 29:13 . 2 Chronicles 29:15 . The father of Abi or Abijah, the mother of king Hezekiah ( 2 Kings 18:2 , 2 Chronicles 29:1 ). 16. A reforming Asaphite under Hezekiah ( 2 Chronicles 29:13 ). 17. Head of a house of the Reubenites ( 1 Chronicles 5:7 ). 18. A Levite, one of the sons of Kohath ( 2 Chronicles 34:12 ). 19. One of the rulers of the Temple under Josiah ( 2 Chronicles 35:8 [ Esther 1:8 Esther 1:8 Zacharias ]). 20. The prophet (see Zechariah [Book of]). 21. One of the family of Parosh ( Ezra 8:11 [ 1Es 8:30 Zacharias ]). 22. Son of Bebal ( Ezra 8:11 [ 1Es 8:37 Zacharias ]). 23. One of the chief men with whom Ezra consulted at the river Ahava ( Ezra 8:15 ; cf. 1Es 8:44 ; prob. = No. 21). 24. A descendant of Elam ( Ezra 10:26 ; Ezra 10:44 [ 1E Esther 9:27 Zacharias ]). 25. A descendant of Perez ( Nehemiah 11:4 ). 26. A Shilonite ( Nehemiah 11:5 ). 27. Son of Pashhur ( Nehemiah 11:12 ). 28. An Asaphite ( Nehemiah 12:35 ). 29. A priest ( Nehemiah 12:41 ).

ZECHARIAH , king of Israel, was the last member of the house of Jehu to come to the throne, and he occupied it only six months. His assassination begins the period of virtual anarchy with which the history of Israel comes to an end ( 2 Kings 14:29 ; 2 Kings 15:8-12 ).
