Azariah: Dr. Kennicott complains loudly here of "the corruption in the name of this king of Judah, who is expressed by four different names in this chapter: Ozriah, Oziah, Ozrihu, and Ozihu. Our oldest Hebrew manuscript relieves us here, by reading truly, in 2Ki 15:1, 2Ki 15:6, 2Ki 15:7, Uzziah, where the printed text is differently corrupted. This reading is called true:
1. Because it is supported by the Syriac and Arabic versions in these three verses.
2. Because the printed text itself has it so in 2Ki 15:32 and 2Ki 15:34 of this very chapter.
3. Because it is so expressed in the parallel place in Chronicles.
4. Because it is not Αζαριας, Azarias, but Οζιας, Ozias (Uzziah) in St. Matthew's genealogy.
