Nehelamite, The

Nehelamite, The,

the designation of a man named Shemaiah, a false prophet, who went with the captivity to Babylon. ( Jeremiah 29:24 Jeremiah 29:31 Jeremiah 29:32 ) The name is no doubt formed from that either of Shemaiahs native place or the progenitor of his family which of the two is uncertain.
