Meaning of the baby name ATHALIAH.


ATHALIAH.  Biblical.  [Hebrew Athalyah = "Jehovah has afflicted" (Gesenius)].

    (1) The daughter of Ahab and the granddaughter of Omri (2 Kings viii. 18-26; 2 Chron. xxi. 6; xxii. 2).  She possessed the masculine courage of her mother Jezebel, and was equally unscrupulous in shedding blood.  Finding that her son, king Ahaziah, had been slain by Jehu, she killed all the sons of the murdered monarch excepting one infant, Joash, who was stolen away by his aunt, Jehosheba.  Then ascending the throne, she reigned six years, at the end of which a priestly insurrection took place in favour of Joash.  Attempting to quell it, she was dragged from the Temple courts and killed at the carriage entrance of the palace (2 Kings xi. 1-16; 2 Chron. xxii. 1—xxiii. 21).
    (2) A Benjamite mentioned in 1 Chron. viii. 26.
    (3) A son of Elam mentioned in Ezra viii. 7. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894).
