Hebrew - Ahikam
AHIKAM

(uh hi kam) Personal name meaning, “my brother stood up.” Son of Josiah's scribe Shaphan. He took the book of the law found in the Temple to Huldah the prophetess to determine God's will (2 Kings 22:8-20). His son Gedaliah headed the Jews left in Judah after Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem (586 B.C.) briefly before rebels killed him (2 Kings 25:22-25). Ahikam protected Jeremiah when King Jehoiakim wanted to kill the prophet (Jeremiah 26:24). Later, his son also protected Jeremiah (Jeremiah 39:14).
