Jehoahaz, son of Jehu

 

(whom the Lord sustains).

The son and successor of jehu, reigned 17 years, B.C. 856-840, over Israel in Samaria. His inglorious history is given in (2 Kings 13:1-9) Throughout his reign, ver. (2 Kings 13:22) he was kept in subjection by Hazael king of Damascus. Jehoahaz maintained the idolatry of Jeroboam; but in the extremity of his humiliation he besought Jehovah, and Jehovah gave Israel a deliverer--probably either Jehoash, vs. (2 Kings 13:23) and 2Kin 13:25 | Jeroboam II., (2 Kings 14:24,25)
