Hilkiah BEN SHALLUM ha-Levi, High Priest of Israel

   General Notes:

Hilkiah was a Hebrew Priest at the time of King Josiah. His name is mentioned in II Kings. He was the High Priest over the Temple of priests that were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, and was the father of an influential family in the Kingdom of Judah. He is known for finding a lost copy of the Book of the Torah at the Temple in Jerusalem at the time that King Josiah commanded that the Holy Temple be refurbished (II Kings 22:8). Hilkiah was the father of Jeremiah the prophet, and possibly Ezekiel the priest, whose mother was Buzi (from the Hebrew root "Buz" which means contempt). His preaching may have helped spur Josiah to return Judah to the worship of Yahweh, the God of Israel.
