AHIKAM (a-hī'kăm, Heb. ’ăhîqām, my brother has risen up). Son of Shaphan the scribe, sent by Josiah to ask the meaning of the Book of the Law that was found (2Kgs.22.12). Later he successfully pleaded before the princes and elders that Jeremiah should not be put to death for his warnings of impending doom (Jer.26.24). After the deportation to Babylon, Ahikam’s son Gedaliah became governor over the people who remained in the cities of Judah (2Kgs.25.22; Jer.40.5).
