Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Jehoahaz
1. Jehu's son and successor; king over northern Israel nearly 17 years, 856-840 B.C. (2 Kings 13:1-9). His reign began in the 22nd or even the 21st year (Josephus) of Joash of Judah, rather than the 23rd year. His persevering in his father's sin, namely, the worship of Jeroboam's calves, and his leaving the Asherah still standing in Samaria from the time of Ahab (2 Kings 23:30-31), brought on Israel Jehovah's anger more than in Jehu's time; for the longer sin is persevered in, the heavier the final reckoning, an accumulated entail of guilt descends (Exodus 20:5). (See GROVE.)
Hazael of Syria and his son Benhadad, as his commander in chief, scourged the people all Jehoahaz' (not as KJV "their") days (Exodus 20:3; Exodus 20:22), leaving him only 50 horsemen, 10 chariots, and 10,000 footmen, "making the people like the dust by threshing": (Amos 1:3) "they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron," i.e. sledges on wheels with iron teeth, cutting the straw as well as threshing out the grain (2 Samuel 12:31; Isaiah 28:27). In his affliction Jehoahaz besought the Lord (Hosea 5:15; Psalms 78:34). "Jehovah hearkened unto him," Israel's oppression moving God's pity, irrespective of Israel's merits (2 Kings 14:25-26). So "He gave Israel a saviour," not in Jehoahaz' reign, but in that of Joash and Jeroboam II his successors, who were each in turn "a saviour"; for the answer to prayer often comes when the petitioner is dead and gone (2 Kings 14:22-25). Notwithstanding his misfortunes, Jehoahaz had shown "might" in the conflict with Syria.
2. The name given to Jehoram's youngest son during his father's lifetime. Ahaziah was his name as king (2 Chronicles 21:17).
3. Son of Josiah; at his father's death the people took and made him king, 610 B.C., in preference to his two elder brothers, Johanan and Jehoiakim (1 Chronicles 3:15; Jeremiah 22:11; 1 Kings 16:33; 2 Kings 23:36; 2 Chronicles 36:2). Zedekiah, though put before Jehoahaz or Shallum in 1 Chronicles 3:15, was younger; 2 Chronicles 36:11 he is given precedence because of his longer reign, namely, eleven years, whereas Jehoahaz reigned but three months, then was carried by Pharaoh Necho to Egypt, never to return. Jehoahaz, or Shallum, was born of the same mother as Zedekiah, namely, Hamutal; so they are put together, whereas Jehoiakim was son of Zebudah. With Josiah the regular succession of David's house ceased. The people set up Jehoahaz out of order; Johanan is never after mentioned; the pagan Pharaoh set up Jehoiakim; Nebuchadnezzar Zedekiah.
Jeremiah gave Jehoahaz the significant name Shallum, i.e. "to whom it is requited"; a second "Shallum," son of Jabesh, who reigned only one mouth in Samaria (2 Kings 15:13), instead of Shalom, "peaceful," like Solomon: bitter irony! The popular party set great hopes upon him (Jeremiah 22:10-12), as though he would deliver the kingdom from Pharaoh Necho, and "anointed" him with extraordinary ceremony to compensate for his defective title to the throne. Ezekiel 19:3-4 compares him to "a young lion" which "learned to catch the prey and devoured men."
His mother, "Jerusalem," is called "a lioness," referring to her heathenish practices in sad contrast to Jerusalem's name (Isaiah 29:1) Ariel, "the lion of God," and Judah, "a lion's whelp ... an old lion" in a good sense (Genesis 49:9). Meditating revenge for his father's death at Megiddo (2 Kings 23:29-30), Jehoahaz was carried captive from "Riblah" in Hamath to Egypt by Pharaoh Necho; "they brought him with chains (or hooks or rings, fastened in wild beasts' noses, appropriate figure as he was compared to a 'lion'; the Assyrian king literally put a hook through the nose of captives, as appears in the Ninevite remains) unto ... Egypt." "He did evil in the sight of the Lord according to all that his fathers had done." Josephus says "he was godless and tyrannical (literally, polluted) in disposition." In 2 Chronicles 36:3 "Jerusalem" is stated to be the place where the king of Egypt deposed him.
Doubtless Pharaoh, having there dethroned him, took him thence to "Riblah." After his victory at Megiddo, Necho intended to march forward to the Euphrates, but hearing that Jehoahaz had ascended the throne as the people's favorite, whose leanings would be on the side of Babylon against Egypt, like Josiah's, he sent a division of his army, which took Jerusalem and dethroned Jehoahaz, and laid a heavy tribute on the land. Eliakim would readily act as his vassal, as owing his elevation to the throne, under the name Jehoiakim to Necho.
Indeed Pharaoh did not recognize the reign of Jehoahaz because elevated without his consent; therefore the words are "Pharaoh made Eliakim king in the room of Josiah his father" (2 Kings 23:34). The main army marched slowly to Riblab, his head quarters, and thither he had Jehoahaz brought, then chained and taken to Egypt. The people, feeling Jehoiakim's heavy taxation for the tribute to Egypt (2 Kings 23:35), lamented for their favorite in spite of his faults. Jeremiah 22:10; "weep ye not for the dead (Josiah; 2 Chronicles 35:24-25), (so much as) for him that goeth away; for he shall return no more," namely, Jehoahaz. Dying saints are to be envied, living sinners to be pitied. Jeremiah's undesigned coincidence with the facts recorded in the history confirms the truth of both.
People's Dictionary of the Bible - Jehoahaz
Jehoahaz (je-hô'a-hăz), whom Jehovah holds. 1. Son and successor of Jehu, king of Israel for 17 years, b.c. 856-840. See 2 Kings 13:1-9. His reign was disastrous to the Kingdom. The kings of Syria, Hazael and Benhadad, oppressed and spoiled the country. When his troubles multiplied he sought the Lord, whom he had forsaken, and God ultimately raised up a deliverer in the person of Jehoash, his son. 2 Kings 5:25. 2. Son and successor of Josiah, king of Judah, 2 Kings 23:30; called Shallum, 1 Chronicles 3:15; Jeremiah 22:11. Though he was the fourth son, yet the people chose him king. He was an evil-doer, 2 Kings 23:32, and referred to as a young lion by Ezekiel 19:3. He reigned only three months, b.c. 610. Pharaoh-necho sent him a prisoner loaded with chains into Egypt, and there he died, Jeremiah 22:11-12, and his brother Jehoiakim became king in his stead. 2 Kings 23:30; 2 Kings 23:35. 3. The same with Ahaziah and Azariah. Compare 2 Chronicles 21:17; 2 Chronicles 22:1; 2 Chronicles 22:6; 2 Chronicles 22:8-9.

1. Son and successor of Jehu king of Israel: he reigned from B.C. 856 to 841. He did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, and was oppressed by Hazael king of Syria, who compelled him to reduce his army to fifty horsemen, ten chariots, and ten thousand foot soldiers. His submission to Syria continued under Benhadad. But when he prayed to the Lord a 'saviour' was raised up who delivered him out of the hand of the Syrians. 2 Kings 13:1-25 ; 2 Kings 14:1,8,17 ; 2 Chronicles 25:17,25 .
2. Son and successor of Josiah king of Judah: he reigned only three months, B.C. 610.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Jehoahaz
JEHOAHAZ
1. Jehoahaz of Israel (in 2 Kings 14:1 and 2 Chronicles 34:8 ; 2 Chronicles 36:2 ; 2 Chronicles 36:4 Joahaz ) succeeded his father Jehu. Our records tell us nothing of him except the length of his reign, which is given as seventeen years ( 2 Kings 13:1 ), and the low estate of his kingdom, owing to the aggressions of Syria. A turn for the better seems to have come before his death, because the forces of Assyria pressing on the north of Damascus turned the attention of that country away from Israel ( 2 Kings 13:3-5 ).
2. Jehoahaz of Judah (in 1Es 1:34 Joachaz or Jeconias ; in 1Es 1:38 Zarakes ) was the popular choice for the throne after the death of Josiah ( 2 Kings 23:30 ). But Pharaoh-necho, who had obtained possession of all Syria, regarded his coronation as an act of assumption, deposed him in favour of his brother Jehoiakim, and carried him away to Egypt, where he died ( 2 Kings 23:34 ). Jeremiah, who calls him Shallum , finds his fate sadder than that of his father who fell in battle ( Jeremiah 22:10-12 ).
3. 2Ch 21:17 ; 2 Chronicles 25:23 = Ahaziah , No. 2 .

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Jehoahaz
There are two sons of kings of this name in Scripture—Jehoahaz, son of Jehu. (2 Kings 13:1) and Jehoahaz, or Shallum; son of Josiah, king of Judah, (Jeremiah 22:11) The name is a compound, signifying, from Achaz, a possession of the Lord.
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Jehoahaz
otherwise SHALLUM, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, Jeremiah 22:11 . Josiah having been wounded mortally by Necho, king of Egypt, and dying of his wounds at Megiddo, Jehoahaz was made king in his room, though he was not Josiah's eldest son, 2 Kings 23:30-32 . He was in all probability thought fitter than any of his brethren to make head against the king of Egypt. He was twenty-three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned about three months only in Jerusalem, in the year of the world 3395. King Necho, at his return from the expedition against Carchemish, provoked at the people of Judah for having placed this prince upon the throne without his consent, sent for him to Riblah, in Syria, divested him of the kingdom, loaded him with chains, and sent him into Egypt, where he died, Jeremiah 22:11-12 . Jehoiakim, or Eliakim his brother, was made king in his room.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Jehoahaz
(jih hoh uh haz) Personal name meaning, “Yahweh grasps hold.” Two kings of Judah and one king of Israel bore this name. 1. In 2 Chronicles 21:17 , the son and successor of Jehoram as king of Judah (841 B.C.). He is more frequently referred to as Ahaziah. 2. In 2 Kings 10:35 , the son and successor of Jehu as king of Israel (814-798 B.C.). His reign is summarized in 2 Kings 13:1 . Although 2 Kings 13:1 states that he reigned for seventeen years, a comparison of 2 Kings 13:1 with 2 Kings 13:10 seems to point to a reign of fourteen years or a coregency with his son for about three years. 3. In 2 Kings 23:30 , the son and successor of Josiah as king of Judah (609 B.C.). He is also known as Shallum. See Israel ; Chronology of the Biblical Period .
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Jehoahaz

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Jehoahaz
Jehovah his sustainer, or he whom Jehovah holdeth.
The youngest son of Jehoram, king of Judah (2 Chronicles 21:17 ; 22:1,6,8,9 ); usually Ahaziah (q.v.).
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).
Josiah's third son, usually called Shallum (1 Chronicles 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; Jeremiah 22:10-12 ; 2 Chronicles 36:1-4 ).
Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Jehoahaz
Three kings in Israel and Judah had the name Jehoahaz. The first was the Judean king Ahaziah, for whom Jehoahaz was an alternative name. He reigned for only one year (842 BC; 2 Chronicles 21:16-17; 2 Chronicles 22:1; see AHAZIAH). The second was the son of Jehu who succeeded his father as king of Israel. He came to the throne in 814 BC and reigned for seventeen years. He was a worthless ruler, during whose reign attacks from Syria brought Israel almost to total collapse. If God had not mercifully intervened, the people would have been left homeless and the entire army destroyed (2 Kings 13:1-9).
The third king named Jehoahaz was a son of Josiah. He had a brief three-month reign over Judah (609 BC) in the kingdom’s closing years. Pharaoh Necho, having just defeated and killed Josiah, considered himself the overlord of Judah and would not accept Jehoahaz as king. Necho threw Jehoahaz into prison and later took him to Egypt, where he eventually died (2 Kings 23:29-34). He was also known as Shallum (Jeremiah 22:11-12).

Zedekiah - He was the third son of Josiah, and his mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah, and hence he was the brother of Jehoahaz (2 Kings 23:31 ; 24:17,18 )
Joash - The son and successor of Jehoahaz, king of Israel
Joash or Jehoash - ...
The son and successor of Jehoahaz, king of Israel, B
Ahaziah - ...
Called Jehoahaz (2 Chronicles 21:17-19). Azariah ("whom Jehovah helps," substantially equivalent to Ahaziah or Jehoahaz by transposition, a name sadly at variance with his character), in 2 Chronicles 22:6, may be a transcriber's error for Ahaziah
Hazael - ) The very same image is used in the independent history (an undesigned coincidence and mark of genuineness), concerning the king of Syria's oppression of Israel under Jehoahaz, Jehu's son: "he made them like the dust by threshing" (2 Kings 13:7). Jehoash, son of Jehoahaz, recovered from Benhadad, Hazael's son, the cities taken by Hazael
Jehoash - ) ...
...
The son and successor of Jehoahaz, king of Israel (2 Kings 14:1 ; comp 12:1; 13:10)
Riblah - Riblah or Riblathah in the land of Hamath, on the high road between Palestine and Babylon, where the Babylonian kings remained in directing the operations of their armies in Palestine and Phoenicia; where Jehoahaz was put in chains by Pharaoh Necho (2 Kings 23:33), and Zedekiah, after seeing his sons slain, had his own eyes put out (Jeremiah 39:5-7; literally, Jeremiah 39:9-10), and other leading captives were slain, probably by the Assyrian death of impaling (Jeremiah 39:24; Jeremiah 39:27), as depicted on the monuments
Ahaziah - He is called AZARIAH in 2 Chronicles 22:6 , and Jehoahaz in 2 Chronicles 21:17
Hazael - Some years passed after this, before Hazael undertook any thing against the kingdom of Judah, it being remote from Damascus; but in the reign of Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, A
Jehoiakim - Raised to the throne by Pharaoh Necho, who named him Jehoiakim (whom Jehovah establishes), having deposed Jehoahaz, the people's nominee, his younger brother. (See Jehoahaz. " Nebuchadnezzar from Carchemish marched to Jerusalem, and fettered him as Pharaoh Necho's tributary, in the third (Dan 1) or fourth year of his reign (the diversity being caused by reckoning Jehoahaz' reign as a year, or not), intending to take him to Babylon; bat afterward for the sake of his former ally Josiah, his father, restored him as a vassal

NOTE: Overlapping dates of kings such as between Uzziah and Jotham result from coregencies, that is, a father installing his son as king during the father's lifetime and allowing the son to exercise royal power
Libnah - Hamutal, Josiah's queen, mother of Jehoahaz and Zedekiah, was of Libnah (2 Kings 23:31; 2 Kings 24:18
je'hu - (2 Kings 10:29-33 ) He was buried in state in Samaria, and was succeeded by his son Jehoahaz
Jeremiah - During the three years of the reign of Jehoahaz we find no reference to Jeremiah, but in the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the enmity of the people against him broke out in bitter persecution, and he was placed apparently under restraint (Jeremiah 36:5 )
Jehu - After a reign of eight-and-twenty years over Israel, Jehu died, and was succeeded by his son, Jehoahaz; but his reign was embittered by the war which Hazael, king of Syria, long waged against him, 2 Kings 10:32-36 . His four descendants, who succeeded him in the throne, were Jehoahaz, Joash, Jeroboam II, and Zechariah
Ben-Hadad - Jehovah, moved by Jehoahaz' repentance of his previous wickedness, and by his beseeching prayers, and by the oppression suffered by his people from Hazael, "who had made them like the dust by threshing," gave Israel a savior from Ben-Hadad in Joash his son's days
Joash - Son and successor of Jehoahaz, king of Israel: he reigned sixteen years: B
Elisha - 855 798), and during this period four monarchs, Jehoram, Jehu, Jehoahaz, and Joash, sat on the throne of Israel (2 Kings 3:1 ff; cf. The blockade of Samaria ( 2 Kings 6:24 to 2 Kings 7:20 ) probably falls in the reign of Jehoahaz
Jeremi'ah - 626) to the prophetic office, and prophesied forty-two years; but we have hardly any mention of him during the eighteen years between his call and Josiah's death, or during the short reign of Jehoahaz
Dispersion - 608, Necho took king Jehoahaz and probably others to Egypt
Jeremi'ah - 626) to the prophetic office, and prophesied forty-two years; but we have hardly any mention of him during the eighteen years between his call and Josiah's death, or during the short reign of Jehoahaz
Judah, Kingdom of - Judah's armies progressively augmented, Israel's decreased; under Ahab against Syria Israel's forces were "like two little flocks of kids"; under Jehoahaz "50 horsemen" (1 Kings 20:27; 2 Kings 13:7). ...
After the reigns of the worthless Jehoahaz, set aside by Pharaoh Necho who promoted Jehoiakim, and Jehoiachin or Coniah, Zedekiah (promoted by Nebuchadnezzar) through treachery in violation of his oath brought destruction on himself and Jerusalem (588 B
Elisha - ), Jehoahaz (c
Jeremiah - ) and grandfather of the Kings Jehoahaz Zedeki'ah - He was the son of Josiah by his wife Hamutal, and therefore own brother to Jehoahaz
Generation - , his first son Jehoahaz about 814 B
Israel, Kingdom of - Hazael, the ablest king of Damascus, reduced Jehoahaz to the condition of a vassal, and triumphed for a time over both the disunited Hebrew kingdoms
Benhadad - During his reign, Jehoash, king of Israel, recovered from him all that his father Hazael had taken from Jehoahaz, his predecessor
Jeremiah - Considering itself now the master of Judah, Egypt removed Jehoahaz, the new Judean king, and made his older brother Jehoiakim king instead (2 Kings 23:31-37). There are warnings to rulers, such as Zedekiah (21:1-10; 24:1-10), kings in general (21:11-22:9), Jehoahaz (Shallum), Jehoiakim and Jehoiachin (Coniah) (22:10-30)
Tiglath-Pileser - Azariah had died, and after the short reign of his son Jotham, Jehoahaz or Ahaz came to the throne
Damascus - )...
Benhadad his son continued to exercise a lordship over Israel (2 Kings 13:3-7; 2 Kings 13:22) at first; but Joash, Jehoahaz' son, beat him thrice, according to Elisha's dying prophecy (2 Kings 13:14-19), for "the Lord had compassion on His people
Pharaoh - So Necho for a time ruled all Syria, "from the Euphrates to the river of Egypt," deposed Jehoahaz for Eliakim = Jehoiakim, and levied tribute (2 Kings 24:7; 2 Kings 23:31-35)
Pha'Raoh, - Perhaps he was on his way thither when he deposed Jehoahaz
Jonah - e early in Joash's reign, when Jehovah (probably by Jonah) promised deliverance from Syria, which was actually given first under Joash, in answer to Jehoahaz' prayer, then completely under Jeroboam II. (See Jehoahaz
Jeroboam - In Jehoahaz' reign Jehovah gave Israel promise of a "saviour" from Syria who "had made Israel like the dust by threshing" (2 Kings 13:4-5). (See Jehoahaz
Zedekiah - ) Youngest son of Josiah and Hamutal (Jeremiah 1:3; Jeremiah 37:1), brother to Jehoahaz (2 Kings 24:17-18; 2 Kings 23:31)
Exile - Jehoahaz, one of Josiah's sons, ruled Judah for three months in 609 B
Assyria - In his inscriptions occur the names of Jehoahaz (Ahaz) of Judah; Pekah, and Hoshea of Israel; Reson (Resin) of Damascus; and Hiram of Tyre
Lamentations - The events probably are included under Manasseh and Josiah (2 Chronicles 33:11; 2 Chronicles 35:20-25), Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, and Zedekiah (2 Chronicles 36:3, etc
Jeremiah - During the short reign of Shallum, or Jehoahaz, his second son, who succeeded him, Jeremiah does not appear to have had any revelation
Jeremiah - In Jeremiah 22:11-12 Jeremiah foretold that Josiah's son, Shallum or Jehoahaz who reigned but three months and was carried to Egypt by Pharaoh Necho, should never return. (See Jehoahaz
Moab - Moabite marauding "bands" thenceforward at intervals invaded Israel, as under Jehoahaz (2 Kings 13:20)
Jeremiah - A Jew of Libnah, whose daughter, Hamutal or Hamital, was one of the wives of Josiah, and mother of Jehoahaz ( 2 Kings 23:31 ) and Zedekiah ( 2 Kings 24:18 , Jeremiah 11:1-825 ). For three years the country was subject to the victorious Pharaoh, who deposed and deported Shalum-Jehoahaz, the national choice, replacing him on the throne of Judah by his brother Eliakim-Jehoiakim
Jehoram - ...
They carried away his substance from his house, his sons, and wives, so that there was never a son left him save Jehoahaz (Ahaziah) the youngest (God for the sake of His covenant with David still leaving" a light to him and to his sons for ever": 2 Chronicles 21:7; 2 Samuel 7:12-13; Psalms 132:17), a retribution in kind for the murder of his father's sons
Jonah - 802 790 or 798 782), or even under Jehoahaz (815 802 or 798)
Ezekiel - His son Jehoahaz was deposed by the Egyptians after a three-months' rule and was succeeded by another son, Jehoiakim (609-598 B
Egypt - Necho carrying all before him proceeded as far as Carchemish on the Euphrates, and on returning to Jerusalem he deposed Jehoahaz and carried him to Egypt (where he died), and set up his brother Eliakim in his stead, calling him Jehoiakim
Psalms - ...
Neither Heman nor the sons of Heman are named in the superscriptions, but the sons of Korah; perhaps because Heman, though musical and head of the Korahitic singers, was not also poetically gifted as was Asaph; Psalm 88, is gloom throughout, yet the title calls it (shir ) a "song" of joy; this can only refer to Psalm 89 which follows being paired with it; it was when the "anointed" of David's throne (Josiah) had his "crown profaned on the ground," being not able to" stand in the battle" (Psalms 89:43), and his son Jehoahaz after a three months' reign was carried to Egypt by Pharaoh Necho (2 Chronicles 35:20-25; 2 Chronicles 36:1-4; Psalms 89:45); the title, "to the chief musician," shows the temple was standing, Josiah had just before caused a religious revival
Jews - The fate of their kings Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jechoiachin, and Zedekiah, was unhappy
Jerusalem - Within the space of sixty-six years more it was taken by Pharaoh-Necho, king of Egypt, whom Josiah, king of Judah, had opposed in his expedition to Carchemish; and who, in consequence, was killed at the battle of Megiddo, and his son Eliakim placed on the throne in his stead by Necho, who changed his name to Jehoiakim, and imposed a heavy tribute upon him, having sent his elder brother, Jehoahaz, who had been proclaimed king at Jerusalem, a prisoner to Egypt, where he died, 2 Kings 23; 2 Chronicles 35
