(whom the Lord helps) a common name in Hebrew, and especially in the families of the priests of the line of Eleazar, whose name has precisely the same meaning as Azariah. It is nearly identical, and is often confounded, with Ezra as well as with Zerahiah and Seraiah. The principal persons who bore this name were:
Son of Jeroham, one of the captains of Judah in the time of Athaliah. (2 Chronicles 23:1)
* See other occurrences of the same term: Azariah.
