Azariah
Jah (Jehovah) has helped
Strong's #H5838

Several Biblical people are named Azariah. One of these was the tenth ruler over the Kingdom of Judah. Also referenced as Uzziah (meaning, "strength of Jah," Strong's #H5818), Azariah ruled from 792 to 740 B.C.

God struck Azariah with leprosy for his foolish and prideful attempt to usurp priestly authority and offer incense in Jerusalem's temple (2 Chronicles 26:16 - 20). For the rest of his reign (possibly ten years) his son Jotham not only co-ruled with him but also was responsible for administering justice.

Azariah's fifty-two years on the throne was the second longest reign of any ruler over Judah or Israel. As such, He is referenced by six Biblical prophets (Isaiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, Hosea, Amos and Zechariah).
