2 Kings 15:6  (King James Version)
And the rest of the acts of Azariah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
 


Azariah
Dr. Kennicott complains loudly here of "the corruption in the name of this king of Judah, who is expressed by four different names in this chapter: Ozriah, Oziah, Ozrihu, and Ozihu. Our oldest Hebrew MS. relieves us here, by reading truly, in verses 1, 6, 7, Uzziah, where the printed text is differently corrupted
This reading is called true, 1. Because it is supported by the Syriac and Arabic versions in these three verses
2. Because the printed text itself has it so in ver. 32 and 34 of this very chapter
3. Because it is so
expressed in the parallel place in Chronicles: and 4. Because it is not [Azarias,] Azarias, but [Ozias,] Ozias, (Uzziah) in St. Matthew's genealogy* they not written.
