Zachariah

Zachariah [N] [E] [H]

(remembered by Jehovah ), or properly Zechariah.

  1. Son of Jeroboam II., fourteenth king of Israel, and the last of the house of Jehu. There is a difficulty about the date of his reign. Most chronologers assume an interregnum of eleven years between Jeroboams death and Zachariahs accession. The latter event took place B.C. 772-1. His reign lasted only six months. He was killed in a conspiracy of which Shallum was the head, and by which the prophecy in ( 2 Kings 10:30 ) was accomplished,
  2. The father of Abi or Abijah, Hezekiahs mother. ( 2 Kings 18:2 )
