Uzziah (/əˈzaɪə/; Hebrew: עֻזִּיָּהוּ, meaning Yahweh is my strength; Greek: Οζίας; Latin: Ozias), also known as Azariah (/ˈæzəˈraɪə/; Hebrew: עֲזַרְיָה Greek: Αζαρις; Latin: Azarias), was a king of the ancient Kingdom of Judah, and one of Amaziah's sons. (2 Chronicles 26:1) (According to James F. Driscoll, the second form of his name most likely is the result of a copyist's error.) Uzziah was 16 when he became king of Judah and reigned for 52 years. The first 24 years of his reign were as co-regent with his father, Amaziah. The Gospel of Matthew lists Uzziah of Judah in the genealogy of Jesus.
