Amaziah [Ămazī'ah]—jehovah has strength.

  1. Son of Joash or Jehoash, king of Judah. Amaziah came to the throne after the assassination of his father. The writer of 2 Kings gives him unqualified praise for his religious acts (2 Kings 14), but in Chronicles he is accused of gross apostasy (2 Chron. 25:14).
  2. The priest at Bethel who opposed the prophet Amos in the matter of idol-worship (Amos 7:10).
  3. A man of the tribe of Simeon (1 Chron. 4:34).
  4. A Levite descended from Merari (1 Chron. 6:45).
