  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 
  (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).
