Hilki'ah. (God is my portion).

1. Father of Eliakim. 2 Kings 18:37; Isaiah 22:20; Isaiah 36:22. See Eliakim.

2. High priest, in the reign of Josiah. 2 Kings 22:4; seq. 2 Chronicles 34:9; seq.; 1 Esdras 1:8. (B.C. 623). His high priesthood was rendered particularly illustrious, by the great reformation effected under it, by King Josiah, by the solemn Passover, kept at Jerusalem in the 18th year of that king's reign, and above all, by the discovery which he made, of the book of the law of Moses in the Temple.

3. A Merarite Levite, son of Amzi. 1 Chronicles 6:45.

4. Another Merarite Levite, second son of Hosah. 1 Chronicles 26:11.

5. One of those, who stood on the right hand of Ezra, when he read the law to the people; doubtless a Levite, and probably a priest. Nehemiah 8:4. (B.C 410).

6. A priest of Anathoth, father of the prophet, Jeremiah. Jeremiah 1:1. (B.C. Before 628).

7. Father of Gemariah, who was one of Zedekiah's envoys to Babylon. Jeremiah 29:3. (B.C. long before 587).
