Ahaz

Ahaz was king of Judah around 742 BC. He ruled in wickedness, having corrupted the temple rites and offered his own son in heathen sacrifice. Ahaz is mentioned in the Book of Mormon five times, four times in Nephi’s citing of Isaiah 7 (2 Ne. 17) and once in Nephi’s citing of Isaiah 14 (2 Ne. 24).
