(1) A man of Judah, family of Zerah, house of Ethan,

1 Chronicles 2:8 And the sons of Ethan; Azariah.

.
(2) A Levite, family of Kohath, line of Izhar, and an ancestor of Samuel the prohpet and Heman the singer,

1 Chronicles 6:36 The son of Elkanah, the son of Joel, the son of Azariah, the son of Zephaniah,

; perhaps

2 Chronicles 29:12 Then the Levites arose, Mahath the son of Amasai, and Joel the son of Azariah, of the sons of the Kohathites: and of the sons of Merari...

.

(3) One of Solomon's officials, son of the high priest Zadok, and brother of Ahimaaz,

1 Kings 4:2 And these were the princes which he had; Azariah the son of Zadok the priest,

1 Chronicles 6:9 And Ahimaaz begat Azariah, and Azariah begat Johanan,

.

(7) Two sons of king Jehoshaphat,

2 Chronicles 21:2 And he had brothers the sons of Jehoshaphat, Azariah, and Jehiel, and Zechariah, and Azariah, and Michael, and Shephatiah...

. The recurrence of the same name in the family is surprising. It may be due to an early corruption of the text; or, if the text is correct, to a difference of mother, the two boys being half-brothers (Compare the Herods). It cannot be explained by the theory that the younger was named after a deceased elder brother, for the two seem to have been alive together and to have been put to death at the same time (Davis).

(8) A man of Judah, family of Hezron, house of Jerahmeel,

1 Chronicles 2:38 And Obed begat Jehu, and Jehu begat Azariah,

1 Chronicles 2:39 And Azariah begat Helez, and Helez begat Eleasah,

. His grandfather was Obed (1 Ch

1 Chronicles 2:38 And Obed begat Jehu, and Jehu begat Azariah,

2 Chronicles 23:1 And in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and took the captains of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham...

.

2 Chronicles 28:12 Then certain of the heads of the children of Ephraim, Azariah the son of Johanan, Berechiah the son of Meshillemoth...

.

(11) A king of Judah, called also Uzziah (B.C.

811-759),

2 Chronicles 22:6 And he returned to be healed in Jezreel because of the wounds which were given him at Ramah, when he fought with Hazael king of Syria...

;

2 Chronicles 23:1 And in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and took the captains of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham...

.

2 Kings 14:21 And all the people of Judah took Azariah, which was sixteen years old, and made him king instead of his father Amaziah.

*Compare with

2 Chronicles 26:17-20 And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD, that were valiant men...

(13) A high priest during Hezekiah's reign, possibly the same as (12),

2 Chronicles 31:10 And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said...

,

2 Chronicles 31:13 And Jehiel, and Azaziah, and Nahath, and Asahel, and Jerimoth, and Jozabad, and Eliel...

.

(14) A Levite, family of Merari, who assisted in purifying the temple in Hezekiah's reign,

2 Chronicles 29:12 Then the Levites arose, Mahath the son of Amasai, and Joel the son of Azariah, of the sons of the Kohathites: and of the sons of Merari...

.

(15) A high priest, son of Hilkiah and father of Seraiah, not long before the exile,

1 Chronicles 6:13 And Shallum begat Hilkiah, and Hilkiah begat Azariah,

,

1 Chronicles 6:14 And Azariah begat Seraiah, and Seraiah begat Jehozadak,

; perphaps

1 Chronicles 9:11 And Azariah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub...

(22) A descendant of Hilkiah who was ruler of the house of God after the exile,

1 Chronicles 9:11 And Azariah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub...

; see however, Seraiah.

Nehemiah 11:11 Seraiah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub...

(23) A king of Israel (not Uzziah), called Azariah in which is given in the next verse,

2 Chronicles 22:6 And he returned to be healed in Jezreel because of the wounds which were given him at Ramah, when he fought with Hazael king of Syria...

Zephaniah.

Zephaniah 1:1 The word of the LORD which came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah...

While it is sufficiently evident that many of the variations of the names of persons have arisen from the carelessness of transcribers, or the inattention of translators, and others from a difference (probably dialectical) in the pronunciation (

Judges 12:6 Then said they to him, Say now Shibboleth: and he said Sibboleth: for he could not frame to pronounce it right. Then they took him...

;

2 Kings 8:21 So Joram went over to Zair, and all the chariots with him: and he rose by night, and smote the Edomites which compassed him about...

); it is also evident, that the same persons, as in these instances, must have had two or more totally distinct names.

Shaul, Uzziah, Uriel. ver.

1 Chronicles 6:24 Tahath his son, Uriel his son, Uzziah his son, and Shaul his son.

David's Choristers
'They stood in their office, according to their order.'--1 CHRON. vi. 32 (R.V. margin). This brief note is buried in the catalogue of the singers appointed by David for 'the service of song in the house of the Lord.' The waves of their choral praise have long ages since ceased to eddy round the 'tabernacle of the tent of meeting,' and all that is left of their melodious companies is a dry list of names, in spite of which the dead owners of them are nameless. But the chronicler's description of them

Chronicles
The comparative indifference with which Chronicles is regarded in modern times by all but professional scholars seems to have been shared by the ancient Jewish church. Though written by the same hand as wrote Ezra-Nehemiah, and forming, together with these books, a continuous history of Judah, it is placed after them in the Hebrew Bible, of which it forms the concluding book; and this no doubt points to the fact that it attained canonical distinction later than they. Nor is this unnatural. The book
