ZEDEKIAH . 1 . Son of Chenaanah, and one of Ahab’s four hundred court prophets ( 1 Kings 22:11; 1 Kings 22:24-25 , 2 Chronicles 18:10; 2 Chronicles 18:23-24 ). 2 . A prophet deported to Babylon with Jehoiachin. He and another, named Ahab , are denounced by Jeremiah ( Jeremiah 29:21-23 ) for gross immorality as well as for falsely prophesying a speedy restoration from Babylon. It was probably their action as political agitators that brought on them the cruel punishment of being roasted in the fire by order of Nebuchadrezzar. 3 . Son of Hananiah, one of the princes in the reign of Jehoiakim ( Jeremiah 36:12 ). 4 . A signatory to the covenant ( Nehemiah 10:1 ). 5. See next article.
