*Now it came to pass in athe third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that b||Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign. 2 Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was ||Abi, the daughter of Zachariah. 3 cAnd he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that David his father did. 4 dHe removed the high places, and brake the †images, and cut down ethe groves, and brake in pieces the fbrasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it ||Nehushtan.
He is called Ezekias, Matt. 1:9.
