Gemariah

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Gemariah : Jehovah has made perfect.

  1. The son of Shaphan, and one of the Levites of the temple in the time of Jehoiakim (Jeremiah 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 (Jeremiah 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 (Jeremiah 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 (Jeremiah 29:3,4).
