HIZKIAH

hiz-ki'-a (chizqiyah; Septuagint Ezekia, "strength of Yah"):

(1) A son of Neariah, a descendant of David (1 Chronicles 3:23, the King James Version "Hezekiah").

(2) An ancestor of the prophet Zephaniah (Zec 1:1). In the Revised Version (British and American) this word is here translated "Hezekiah."
