A Levite, teacher of the Law in Judah under Jehoshaphat (2Ch 17:8). 12. A Levite of the family of Jeduthun, engaged in purifying the Temple under Hezekiah (2Ch 29:14). 13. A Levite 'over the freewill offerings of God' (2Ch 31:16). 14. A chief of the Levites (2Ch 35:9), called Samaias in Septuagint and in 1Es 1:9. 15.

Another, or perhaps the same (Ne 12:42). 25. Father of Uriah the prophet (Jer 26:20). 26. A prophet, called 'the Nehelamite,' carried into captivity at Babylon with Jehoiachin, actively engaged in opposing Jeremiah (Jer 29:24-32). Jeremiah predicted the complete cutting off of his family. 27. Father of Delaiah, who was a prince in the reign of Zedekiah (Jer 36:12). 28. 'The great,' kinsman of Tobias (Tob 5:13). In several cases two of these may be the same individual. The identification has the most probability in reference to 2 and 3, 8 and 9, and 12 and 13.

But a message from God came to Shemaiah, a man of God: "Tell Solomon's son Rehoboam, king of Judah, all the dynasty of Judah, Benjamin, and the rest of the people, read more. "This is what the LORD says: "You are not to fight or even approach your fellow Israelis in battle. Every soldier is to return to his own home, because this development comes from me."'" So they listened to what the LORD had to say and returned home, just as the LORD had directed.

In response, the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves and declared, "The LORD is righteous." read more. When the LORD observed that they had humbled themselves, the LORD spoke to Shemaiah, "They have humbled themselves, so I won't destroy them. Instead, I'll grant them some deliverance by not pouring out my indignation on Jerusalem, using Shishak to do it. Nevertheless, they will become his slaves so they may learn to differentiate between what it means to serve me and to serve the kingdoms of these nations."

But I asked him, "Should a man like me run? Should someone like me run into the Temple to save his life? I won't go there!" read more. I perceived that God had not sent him. Instead, Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him to pronounce this prophecy against me. He had been hired to make me afraid so I would sin by doing what he suggested.

The LORD made you a priest instead of Jehoiada the priest to serve in the LORD's Temple as an official against every crazy prophet, and to put him in stocks and restraints.
