Amaziah

Additional Links

Amaziah (ăm-a-zî'ah), whom Jehovah strengthens. 1. The son and successor of Jehoash, or Joash, king of Judah. He was 25 years old at his accession, and he reigned 29 years, 838-809 b.c. His conduct was, at first, unexceptionable; but he afterwards declined from God's law, and brought misfortune and judgment upon himself and his kingdom. The history does not tell us that he repented; for the consequences of his idolatry still pursued him. His own subjects conspired against him, and, when he fled to Lachish, slew him there. He was succeeded by his son Azariah, or Uzziah. 2 Kings 14:1-21; 2 Chronicles 25:2. A Simeonite. 1 Chronicles 4:34. 3. A Levite. 1 Chronicles 6:45. 4. An idolatrous priest of the golden calf at Bethel, in the reign of Jeroboam II. Amos 7:10-17.
