Shelemiah (Shel´uh-mi´uh; Heb., “Yah[weh] has recompensed” or “Yah[weh] has restored”)

1 The father of Nethaniah (Jer 36:14). 2 One of Jehoiakim’s men sent to seize Baruch (Jer 36:26). 3 The father of Jehucal (Jer 37:3; Jer 38:1). 4 The father of Irijah (Jer 37:13). 5 Two men who had married foreign women (Ezra 10:39; Ezra 10:41). 6 The father of Hananiah who helped repair the Jerusalem wall (Neh 3:30). 7 A priest in charge of the storehouses (Neh 13:13). 8 A gatekeeper (1Chr 26:14); this Shelemiah appears to be the same person called Meshelemiah in v. 1 and Shallum in (1Chr 9:17, 1Chr 9:19, and 1Chr 9:31).
