1. A high-priest in the time of king Ahaz. He is called a faithful witness by Isaiah, Isaiah 8:2; but erred in constructing and using at the king's request an altar unlike that prescribed in the law, Exodus 27:1-8; 38:1-7; 2 Kings 16:9-12 .

2. A faithful prophet, from Kirjathjearim in Judah, in the time of Jehoiakim. He confirmed the predictions of Jeremiah against Judah; and having fled to Egypt for refuge from the enraged king, and been sent back by Pharaoh-necho on demand, he was wickedly slain and dishonorably buried, Jeremiah 26:20-23 . Compare 2 Kings 24:4 .
