Smith's Bible DictionaryUrijah
(light of Jehovah).
ATS Bible DictionaryUrijah
1. A high-priest in the time of king Ahaz. He is called a faithful witness by Isaiah, Isaiah 8:2; but erred in constructing and using at the king's request an altar unlike that prescribed in the law, Exodus 27:1-8; 38:1-7; 2 Kings 16:9-12.
2. A faithful prophet, from Kirjathjearim in Judah, in the time of Jehoiakim. He confirmed the predictions of Jeremiah against Judah; and having fled to Egypt for refuge from the enraged king, and been sent back by Pharaoh-necho on demand, he was wickedly slain and dishonorably buried, Jeremiah 26:20-23. Compare 2 Kings 24:4.
Easton's Bible DictionaryThe lord is my light.
(1.) A high priest in the time of Ahaz (2 Kings 16:10-16), at whose bidding he constructed an idolatrous altar like one the king had seen at Damascus, to be set up instead of the brazen altar.
(2.) One of the priests who stood at the right hand of Ezra's pulpit when he read and expounded the law (Nehemiah 8:4).
(3.) A prophet of Kirjath-jearim in the reign of Jehoiakim, king of Judah (Jeremiah 26:20-23). He fled into Egypt from the cruelty of the king, but having been brought back he was beheaded and his body "cast into the graves of the common people."
