Azubah (Hebrew: עֲזוּבָה) was the wife of king Asa and mother of Jehoshaphat being the daughter of Shilhi[1][2]. Her name means ''desolation'' which likely refers to the desolation of the Kingdom of Judah from the previous king, Abijam.

She was the royal consort of Judah bearing Asa's firstborn heir, Jehoshaphat. Her father Shilhi may have been righteous due to her name meaning forsaken which likely refers to the forsaking of Yahweh's people.
