Jehoahaz (je-hô'a-hăz), whom Jehovah holds. 1. Son and successor of Jehu, king of Israel for 17 years, b.c. 856-840. See 2 Kings 13:1-9. His reign was disastrous to the Kingdom. The kings of Syria, Hazael and Benhadad, oppressed and spoiled the country. When his troubles multiplied he sought the Lord, whom he had forsaken, and God ultimately raised up a deliverer in the person of Jehoash, his son. 2 Kings 5:25. 2. Son and successor of Josiah, king of Judah, 2 Kings 23:30; called Shallum, 1 Chronicles 3:15; Jeremiah 22:11. Though he was the fourth son, yet the people chose him king. He was an evil-doer, 2 Kings 23:32, and referred to as a young lion by Ezekiel 19:3. He reigned only three months, b.c. 610. Pharaoh-necho sent him a prisoner loaded with chains into Egypt, and there he died, Jeremiah 22:11-12, and his brother Jehoiakim became king in his stead. 2 Kings 23:30; 2 Kings 23:35. 3. The same with Ahaziah and Azariah. Compare 2 Chronicles 21:17; 2 Chronicles 22:1; 2 Chronicles 22:6; 2 Chronicles 22:8-9.
