Pekahi´ah (Jehovah has opened his eyes), son and successor of Menahem, king of Israel, who began to reign in B.C. 760. He patronized and supported the idolatry of the golden calves; and after an undistinguished reign of two years, Pekah, one of his generals, conspired against him, and, with the aid of Argob and Arish, and fifty Gileadites, slew him in the harem of his own palace ().
