So You’re Looking for a Wife

2 Kings 18:2, “…His mother Abi was the daughter of Zechariah.”

2 Chronicles 29:12-14, “…the following Levite leaders…Zechariah and Mattaniah from the Asaph clan.”

Where does a king go to find a wife?


They either married the daughter of a priest or a Levite. The political marriages to princesses of other countries usually led to their downfall.
