Uriah (Urias, Urijah)
Jehovah is my light (flame), flame of Jah
Strong's #H223

Urijah, in the KJV Bible, is a variant spelling of Uriah while Urias is the Greek form of Uriah.

Uriah the Hittite was one of King David's thirty-seven mighty men of valor who zealously fought for him. Lusting after Uriah's wife Bathsheba, David set him up to be killed in battle. God's judgment for these sins was severe, but the king's life was spared when he immediately repented of what he did.

Uzziah
Strength of Jah, my strength is Jehovah
Strong's #H5818

Several Biblical people are named Uzziah. One of these was the tenth ruler over the Kingdom of Judah. Also referenced as Azariah (meaning, "Jehovah has helped," Strong's #H5838), Uzziah ruled from 792 to 740 B.C.

God struck Uzziah 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.

Uzziah'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).
