Amatzia (Hebrew: אֲמַצְיָה) is a moshav in south-central Israel. Located around 8 km southeast of Lakhish, it falls under the jurisdiction of Lakhish Regional Council. The population is a mix of religious and secular Israelis, and was 263 in 2019.
It was named for King Amaziah of Judah, who, according to the Book of Kings, was killed in the Lakhish region. In the past the community was a moshav shitufi but it has undergone a process of privatization and abandoned its collective nature.
