BIBLE NAMES REVEALED: HULDAH

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Bible Names Revealed

a) The Bible is an historic record of real people and places. Learn who's who, their relationships, and the meaning of their names.

2. Huldah

a) Meaning: weasel.

b) This was the name of a prophetess—the wife of Shallum. She was consulted regarding the “book of the law” discovered by the high priest Hilkiah (2 Kings 22:14-20; 2 Chronicles 34:22-28). She resided in that part of Jerusalem called the Mishneh (Authorized Version, “the college;” Revised Version., “the second quarter”), supposed by some to be the suburb between the inner and the outer wall, the second or lower city, Akra.

c) Miriam (Exodus 15:20), Deborah (Judges 4:4) and Anna (Luke 2:36) are the only others who bear the title of “prophetess,” for the word in Isaiah 8:3 means only the prophet’s wife.


The End ...
