Shallum (Shal´uhm)

1 The son of Jabesh, who made himself king of Israel by assassinating Zechariah, son of Jeroboam II, and so ending the dynasty of Jehu. He was himself assassinated a month later (2Kgs 15:10-15). 2 The husband of the prophetess Huldah (2Kgs 22:14; 2Chr 34:22). 3 Jehoahaz, the fourth son of King Josiah (1Chr 3:15). He was proclaimed king of Judah after his father had been killed by Neco of Egypt. Three months later Neco made Eliakim (Jehoiakim) king, deporting Shallum to Egypt, where he died (2Kgs 23:30-34), as announced in (Jer 22:10-12). 4 The father of Hanameel, a relative from whom Jeremiah bought family land (Jer 32:6-10). 5 The father of Maaseiah, a Temple official (Jer 35:4). 6 The chief gatekeeper in the Levites’ area of the Temple (1Chr 9:17-18), whose descendants were also gatekeepers (Ezra 2:42; Neh 7:45; 1Esd 5:28). He was one of those who divorced foreigners they had married (Ezra 10:24; 1Esd 9:25). He may be the same person as the Korahite official (1Chr 9:19), the father of Mattithiah (1Chr 9:31). 7 Another who divorced a foreign wife (Ezra 10:42). 8 A levitical priest (1Chr 6:1-15), ancestor of Ezra (Ezra 7:1-2; 1Esd 8:1; 2Esd 1:1). 9 The son of Hallohesh, governor of half of the district of Jerusalem. With his daughters he rebuilt part of the city wall (Neh 3:12). 10 A Judahite of the Jerahmeel branch (1Chr 2:40-41). 11 A Simeonite (1Chr 4:25). 12 A son of Naphtali (1Chr 7:13). 13 The father of an Ephraimite leader (2Chr 28:12).
