Huldah: Weasel, a prophetess; the wife of Shallum. She was consulted regarding
the "book of the law" discovered by the high priest Hilkiah
(2 Kings 22:14-20; 2 Chronicles 34:22-28) She resided in that part of Jerusalem
called the Mishneh (A.V., "the college;" R.V., "the second quarter"),
supposed by some to be the suburb between the inner and the outer
wall, the second or lower city, Akra. Miriam
(Exodus 15:20) and Deborah
(Judges 4:4) are the only others who bear the title of "prophetess,"
for the word in
(Isaiah 8:3) means only the prophet's wife.
