King of Jerusalem. He sent the silver in the treasuries to Tilgath-Pilesar, the Assyrians' king, asking that he save him from the Syrians and the Israelites. And that man sent him aid and marched against Damascus. Ahaz met him there and saw an altar and being pleased with it he took measurements of it and sent to Jerusalem commanding Uriah the priest to build such a one there. And he came back and sacrificed on it to the gods tof the Syrians and he shut up the temple of God.[1] And when he had died, his son by Raboa, the daughter of Zechariah, Hezekiah, ruled in Jerusalem and was more pious than all.[2]
