Gemariah [N] [H] [S]

Jehovah has made perfect.

  • The son of Shaphan, and one of the Levites of the temple in the time of Jehoiakim ( Jeremiah 36:10 ; 2 Kings 22:12 ). Baruch read aloud to the people from Gemariah's chamber, and again in the hearing of Gemariah and other scribes, the prophecies of Jeremiah ( Jeremiah 36:11-20 ), which filled him with terror. He joined with others in entreating the king not to destroy the roll of the prophecies which Baruch had read (21-25).

  • The son of Hilkiah, who accompanied Shaphan with the tribute-money from Zedekiah to Nebuchadnezzar, and was the bearer at the same time of a letter from Jeremiah to the Jewish captives at Babylon ( Jeremiah 29:3 Jeremiah 29:4 ).
