Jehoahaz, Joahaz [Jēhō'ahăz]—jehovah upholds, hath laid hold or the lord that sees.

  1. A son and successor of Jehu and father of Joash who reigned for seven years (2 Kings 10:35; 13; 14; 2 Chron. 25:17, 25). We know little of this king of Israel apart from the length of his reign and the low estate of his kingdom owing to Syrian aggression.
  2. The son and successor of King Jehoram and father of King Joash, of Judah (2 Chron. 21:17; 25:23). Called Ahaziah.
  3. A son of Josiah who was deposed by Pharaoh-nechoh and who only reigned for three months (2 Kings 23:30-34; 2 Chron. 36:1-4). Also called Shallum (1 Chron. 3:15).
