The names of the kings of Judah in their canonical order are: Rehoboam, Abijah, Asa, Jehoshaphat, Jehoram, Ahaziah, Athaliah (queen), Josah, Amaziah, Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, Manasseh, Amon, Josiah, Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin, Zedekiah.
The appellation “Jew” is derived form the patriarch Judah, and was originally applied to all members of that tribe and also subjects of the separate kingdom of Judah, in contradistinction to the seceding ten tribes, who remained the name of Israelites. During the captivity and ever since, the term “Jew” seems to have been applied indiscriminately to the whole race.
There were three walls about Jerusalem. The first was built by David and Solomon; the second, enclosing one of the northern sections of the city, was built by Uzziah, Jotham and Manasseh, and restored by Nehemiah; the third was build by Herod Agrippa, and was intended to enclose the hitherto unprotected suburbs which had grown from the northern part of the city. According to Josephus, who is not always thoroughly reliable, the circumference of the city, evidently including all the sections enclosed by the three walls he describes, was thirty-three stadia, a little less that four English miles.
