strong, the father of the prophet Isaiah (2 Kings 19:2, 20; 20:1; Isa. 1:1; 2:1). As to his personal history little is positively known. He is supposed by some to have been the "man of God" spoken of in 2 Chr. 25:7, 8.
He was the son of amoz, who has been (much too precariously) identified with a brother of Amaziah.
Should not the herdsman of Tehoa plead in pastoral phrase, and the royal son of amoz denounce with strong authority?
