Ahaziah (Jehoahaz) BEN JORAM ha-David, King of Judah (-842/841BC)

   General Notes:

He joined his uncle Jehoram, king of Israel, in an unsuccessful expedition against Hazael, king of the Arameans. Jehoram was wounded in the battle, and when Ahaziah went to visit his uncle at Jezreel, he was caught up in the revolt of Jehu; Ahaziah fled for his life, but was wounded at the pass of Gur, and had strength only to reach Megiddo, where he died (2 Kings 9:22-28). He is said to have reigned only one year.

The author of the inscription on the Tel Dan Stele (found in 1993 and 1994 during archeological excavations of the site of Laish) claimed to have slain both Ahaziah, son of Jehoram, and Jehoram; the most likely author of this monument is Hazael of the Arameans. Although the inscription is a contemporary witness of this period, kings of this period were inclined to boast and make exaggerated claims; it is not clear whether Jehu killed the two kings (as the Bible reports) or Hazael (as the Tel Dan Stele reports).

   Marriage Information:

Ahaziah married Zibiah BAT HABRALIAS of Beersheba.
