Uzziah (//; Hebrew: עֻזִּיָּהוּ ‘Uzzîyāhū, meaning Yah is my strength;Greek: Ὀζίας; Latin: Ozias), also known as Azariah (//; 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) 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.
William F. Albright dated Uzziah's reign to 783 – 742 BC.Edwin R. Thiele's chronology has Uzziah becoming coregent with his father Amaziah in 792/791 BC, and sole ruler of Judah after his father's death in 768/767 BC. Uzziah was struck with leprosy for disobeying God (2 Kings 15:5, 2 Chronicles 26:19-21). Thiele dates Uzziah's being struck with leprosy to 751/750 BC, at which time his son Jotham took over the government, with Uzziah living on until 740/739 BC.Pekah became king of Israel in the last year of Uzziah's reign.
