Jehoahaz or Joachaz (Ιωαχαζ Iōakhaz; Joachaz) was the name of several people mentioned in the Hebrew Bible.


Ahaziah (אֲחַזְיָהוּ, "held by Yah(-weh)"; Douay-Rheims: Ochozias) was the name of two kings mentioned in the Hebrew Bible:


According to the Torah, Uzziel (עֻזִּיאֵל, ʿUzzîʾēl; meaning El is my strength or God is my strength ) was the father of Mishael, Elzaphan, and Zithri, and was a son of Kohath and grandson of Levi, consequently being the brother of Amram and uncle of Aaron, Miriam, and Moses. Uzziel is portrayed in the text as the founder of the Uzzielite faction of Levites; however, despite Uzziel supposedly being Kohath's son, and Elzaphan's father, on some occasions the Book of Chronicles treats the Uzzielites as being quite distinct from the descendants of Kohath, and from those of Elzaphan.


Azaziah (az-a-zi'-a), meaning "whom Jehovah strengthened", may refer to:

Hazael (Aramaic: חזאל, from the triliteral Semitic root h-z-y, "to see"; his full name meaning, "El/God has seen"; ) was an Aramean king who is mentioned in the Bible. Under his reign, Aram-Damascus became an empire that ruled over large parts of Syria and the Land of Israel. While he was likely born in the greater Damascus region of today, his exact place of birth is still controversial, with both Bashan and the Beqaa Valley being favoured by different historians.

"Then in the midst of the congregation the spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel son of Zechariah son of Benaiah son of Joel son of Mattaniah the Levite, of the sons of Asaph, and he said, 'Give heed, all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat; thus said the Lord to you, "Do not fear or be dismayed by this great multitude, for the battle is God's, not yours. . ."'" (2 Chronicles 20:14-15, New Jewish Publication Society Bible). The next morning, Jehoshaphat led his people out, calling them to have faith in the Lord, and leading them in praise. They saw their enemies turn on each other, and returned to Jerusalem in joy.


Amariah means "promised by God" in Hebrew. It was commonly used as a name of priests in the History of ancient Israel and Judah. It appear several times in the Hebrew Bible:


already HebrewSalathielSutuel
One explanation suggests Shealtiel died childless and therefore Pedaiah, his brother, married his widow according to a Jewish law regarding inheritance . If so, Zerubbabel would be the legal son of Shealtiel but the biological son of Pedaiah. The other speculation suggests the title "son of Shealtiel" does not refer to being a biological son but to being a member in Shealtiel's "household" (בית, bet). The Hebrew term "father" (אב, av) can refer to a father of a household, similar to the Latin term paterfamilias.

Book of Nehemiah

NehemiahNeh.2 Esdras (Nehemiah)
The combined book Ezra–Nehemiah of the earliest Christian and Jewish period was known as Ezra and was probably attributed to Ezra himself; according to a rabbinic tradition, however, Nehemiah was the real author but was forbidden to claim authorship because of his bad habit of disparaging others. The Nehemiah Memorial, chapters 1–7 and 11–13, may have circulated as an independent work before being combined with the Ezra material to form Ezra–Nehemiah.
