  Gemariah 
  Jehovah  has  made  perfect.  (1.)  The  son  of  Shaphan,  and  one  of 
  the  Levites  of  the  temple  in  the  time  of  Jehoiakim  (Jer.  36:10; 
  2  Kings  22:12).  Baruch  read  aloud  to  the  people  from  Gemariah's 
  chamber,  and  again  in  the  hearing  of  Gemariah  and  other  scribes, 
  the  prophecies  of  Jeremiah  (Jer.  36:11-20),  which  filled  him 
  with  terror.  He  joined  with  others  in  entreating  the  king  not  to 
  destroy  the  roll  of  the  prophecies  which  Baruch  had  read 
  (21-25). 
 
  (2.)  The  son  of  Hilkiah,  who  accompanied  Shaphan  with  the 
  tribute-money  from  Zedekiah  to  Nebuchadnezzar,  and  was  the 
  bearer  at  the  same  time  of  a  letter  from  Jeremiah  to  the  Jewish 
  captives  at  Babylon  (Jer.  29:3,  4).
