King Ahaziah of Israel

Sort by:
King Ahaziah of Israel: Son of King Ahab and Jezebel, he followed his parents’ evil ways. Reigned from 720-718 BCE. During his reign, Moab rebelled against Israel. Ahaziah injured himself by falling through an attic lattice and inquired of the Ekronite deity Baal-Zebub whether he would recover. For not consulting the Hebrew prophets, he died of his injuries, as was predicted by Elijah the prophet. He was succeeded by his brother Joram.
