retribution. (1.) The son of Jabesh, otherwise unknown. He "conspired against Zachariah, and smote him before the people, and slew him, and reigned in his stead" (2 Kings 15:10). He reigned only "a month of days in Samaria" (15:13, marg.). Menahem rose up against Shallum and put him to death (2 Kings 15:14, 15, 17), and became king in his stead. (2.) Keeper of the temple vestments in the reign of Josiah (2 Kings 22:14). (3.) One of the posterity of Judah (1 Chr. 2:40, 41). (4.) A descendant of Simeon (1 Chr. 4:25). (5.) One of the line of the high priests (1 Chr. 6:13). (6.) 1 Chr. 7:13. (7.) A keeper of the gate in the reign of David (1 Chr. 9:17). (8.) A Levite porter (1 Chr. 9:19, 31; Jer. 35:4). (9.) An Ephraimite chief (2 Chr. 28:12). (10.) The uncle of the prophet Jeremiah (Jer. 32:7). (11.) A son of king Josiah (1 Chr. 3:15; Jer. 22:11), who was elected to succeed his father on the throne, although he was two years younger than his brother Eliakim. He assumed the crown under the name of Jehoahaz (q.v.). He did not imitate the example of his father (2 Kings 23:32), but was "a young lion, and it learned to catch the prey; it devoured men" (Ezek. 19:3). His policy was anti-Egyptian therefore. Necho, at that time at Riblah, sent an army against Jerusalem, which at once yielded, and Jehoahaz was carried captive to the Egyptian camp, Eliakim being appointed king in his stead. He remained a captive in Egypt till his death, and was the first king of Judah that died in exile.
She was the wife of shallum and keeper of the priests' robes, and she lived in the suburbs of the city.
The daughters of shallum did not say, 'We are women, and therefore there is nothing for us to do.'
They went to Huldah, a prophetess, the wife of shallum, the chamberlain.
The people of the land made Josiah's son shallum king, under the name of Jehoahaz.
His uncle shallum and the latter's son Hanameel (his mother's relations) possessed landed property in Anathoth.
The names Hilkiah and shallum are too common to justify any conclusions from such data.
Josiah had left three sons; the first-born was Eliakim, and the two younger sons, shallum and Mattaniah.
And shallum the son of Jabish conspired against him, and smote him before the people, and slew him, and reigned in his stead.
He killed shallum , but no doubt met with greater opposition than he expected.
Wilt tell our Brother Jesus the trouble that has befallen those that stayed by the lake, shallum?
