Azariah, son of Johanan, captains of Ephraim

 

(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 Johanan, one of the captains of Ephraim in the reign of Ahaz. (2 Chronicles 28:12)

 

* See other occurrences of the same term: Azariah.
