  Jehoahaz 
  Jehovah  his  sustainer,  or  he  whom  Jehovah  holdeth  (1.)  The 
  youngest  son  of  Jehoram,  king  of  Judah  (2  Chr.  21:17;  22:1,  6, 
  8,  9);  usually  Ahaziah  (q.v.). 
 
  (2.)  The  son  and  successor  of  Jehu,  king  of  Israel  (2  Kings 
  10:35).  He  reigned  seventeen  years,  and  followed  the  evil  ways 
  of  the  house  of  Jeroboam.  The  Syrians,  under  Hazael  and 
  Benhadad,  prevailed  over  him  but  were  at  length  driven  out  of 
  the  land  by  his  son  Jehoash  (13:1-9,  25). 
 
  (3.)  Josiah's  third  son,  usually  called  Shallum  (1  Chr.  3:15). 
  He  succeeded  his  father  on  the  throne,  and  reigned  over  Judah 
  for  three  months  (2  Kings  23:31,  34).  He  fell  into  the 
  idolatrous  ways  of  his  predecessors  (23:32),  was  deposed  by 
  Pharaoh-Necho  from  the  throne,  and  carried  away  prisoner  into 
  Egypt,  where  he  died  in  captivity  (23:33,  34;  Jer.  22:10-12;  2 
  Chr.  36:1-4).
