AZARIAH.  Biblical.  [Hebrew Azaryah and Azaryahu = "whom Jehovah helps" or "has helped"]. 
    Azariah Boody (d. 1885), was a Whig of the U.S. House of Representatives.  Azariah ben Moses dei Rossi (d. 1578), was an Italian-Jewish physician and scholar. (Wiki)

    (1) A son of Ethan, and the fourth in descent from Judah (1 Chron. ii. 8).
    (2) A priest, the son of Ahimaaz, and father of Johanan (1 Chron. vi. 9).
    (3) A son of Nathan, who was over king Solomon's officers (1 Kings iv. 5).
    (4) A priest, the son of Johanan, and father of Amariah.  He officiated in Solomon's temple (and in Solomon's reign) (1 Chron. vi. 10).

    (6) A son of Jehoshaphat (2 Chron. xxi. 2).
    (7) A man of Judah, the son of a certain Jehu, and the father of Helez (1 Chron. ii. 38, 39).  His grandfather was Obed (38).  He was probably the Azariah the "son of Obed," who remained loyal to Joash, king of Judah, during his infancy, and took part in the revolution which placed him on the throne (2 Chron. xxiii. 1).
    (8) An Ephraimite, a son of Johanan, in the reign of Pekah.  He was one of those who interfered in favour of humanity to the captives of Judah (2 Chron. xxviii. 12).
    (9) A king of Judah, better known to us by his name Uzziah.  But on the Assyrian monuments he is called Azriyahu, as if Azariah was his more common appellation (cf. 2 Kings xv. 1 with 2 Chron. xxvi. 1).
    (10) The leader of the body of priests who ordered Uzziah out of the temple (2 Chron. xxvi. 17-20).
    (11) The chief priest of the house of Zadok, and ruler of the temple in Hezekiah's reign (2 Chron. xxxi. 10-13).
    (12) A Kohathite Levite, the son of Zephaniah and the father of Joel.  He seems to have lived in Hezekiah's reign (1 Chron. vi. 36; 2 Chron. xxix. 12).
    (13) A Merarite Levite, a son of Jehalelel, in Hezekiah's reign (2 Chron. xxix. 12).
    (14) A priest, the son of Hilkiah, and the father of Seraiah, not long before the captivity (1 Chron. vi. 13, 14; ix. 11).
    (15) A son of Hoshaiah and a proud opponent of the prophet Jeremiah (Jer. xliii. 2).
    (16) The original name of Abednego (Dan. i. 7).
    (17) A prince of Judah (?) who took part in the dedication of Zerubbabel's temple (Neh. xii. 32, 33).
    (18) A son of Maaseiah, who had a house at Jerusalem in Nehemiah's time, and repaired the wall in its immediate vicinity (Neh. iii. 23, 24).
    (19) One of those whom Ezra appointed to instruct the people in the law (Neh. viii. 7), and who sealed with Nehemiah the covenant with Jehovah (x. 1, 2).
    Besides these Azariahs, a king of Israel (not Uzziah) is so called in 2 Chron. xxii. 6, but this seems a copyist's error for Ahaziah, which is given in the next verse (2 Chron. xxii. 6, 7.  Cf. with 2 Kings viii. 29). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
