Huldah - Prophetess - Librarian? Searchers for a
stand up, speak out role for women may have found a librarian rather
than a revealer of the Word of God. A "real" female prophetess
such as Miriam (meaning bitter waters or in rebellion) is not pretty. I
have looked at the Latin version to see why Al Maxey insists that
Miriam is the example of a female, musical worship minister with

There are TWO THREADS running from Genesis to
Revelation. The true writing prophets condemned the King-Clergy Elite
as robbers and parasites. They repudiate the modern 'proof texts'
as the message of the Spirit of Christ. A prophet or prophetess
otherwise is a wife of a prophet or a soothsayer. The mother of
harlots (Rev 17) uses "lusted after fruits" as rhetoricians, singers
and instrment players whom John called SORCERERS who had deceived the
whole world (Rev 18). No surprise since Lucifer (Zoe) was the
singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden.
Because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai God
had turned the "Elite" Levites which has a darker history in Dionysus
worship in Egypt, to bear the burden of sacrifices. These sacrifices
were imposed. Later, when the elders fired God and demanded a king like
the nations God knew that they wanted to worship like the nations.
He gave them kings in His anger and took them away in His anger.
Through Samuel He warned that the kings would enslave them and take
their property and children. Stephen says that:
God promised David a tent or tabernacle (at a pagan high place)
While they used the term "Lord" the fact that God had abandoned them to
Sabazianism or worship of the astrial deities, David heard his own
version through Gad who was a stargazer. The prophets in and
around the Temple were charismatic opportunists looking for food.
Huldah's value was that she may have been the only one with access to
the priestly garments and and the scrolls with which most kings knew
nothing. It is very possible that she was:
But, Solomon built God a house
But, God does not dwell in houses built by human hands or by the works of human hands.
2 Chronicles 29 is used as the PATTERN for saying that "God commands instrumental praise" in a
Church of Christ. However, just before that the king had abandoned
Jerusalem. This was a violation of the direct command that the
sacrificial system be quarantined behind the city gates and exposed to public view.
There are only WRITING Prophets by the Spirit OF Christ and the prophecies made more certain by Jesus whom God made to be both Lord and Christ and Word and Grace. Peter said that these prophecies affirmed by Jesus are not to be private interpreted or further expounded.
There is nothing in the God-abandoned
Monarchy which is a PATTERN for A Church of Christ. Rather, the
Monarchy is a pattern of God abandoned primarily the Jacob-cursed and God-abonded tribe of Levi to "worship the starry host" because of musical idolatry of the always-pagan trinity at Mount Sinai.
Both Miriam and the Star and Fire worshiping Levites were called soothsayers or sorcerers: John agreed in Revelation 18.
ergo Maria prophetis soror Aaron tympanum in manu egressaeque sunt omnes mulieres post eam cum tympanis et

God had sentenced the Israelites to "beyond Babylon" meaning "no returned" because of their idolatry at Mount Sinai. When the elders fired God and demanded the First Senior Pastor it was so they could KILL MORE GENTILES. God knew that they wanted to WORSHIP like the nations or GENTILES. Therefore, the Monarchy was an Egyptian-Canaanite-Babylonian Temple state. Read First Samuel Eight if you are getting paid to show people how to fall into Babylonianism defined by John in Revelation 17-18. He called the
speakers, singers and instrument players SORCERERS using a word
pointing to a Babylonian sorcereress. He said they would be cast ALIVE
into the Lake of fire.
Zimri, and Ethan, and Heman, and Calcol, and Dara These five are here stated to be the sons of Zerah, that is, of Ezra, whence they were called Ezrahites (1 Kings 4:31).
In that passage they are called the sons of Mahol, which, however, is
to be taken not as a proper name, but appellatively for sons of music,
dancing, etc. The traditional fame of their great sagacity and
acquirements had descended to the time of Solomon and formed a standard
of comparison for showing the superior wisdom of that monarch. Jewish
writers say that they were looked up to as prophets by their countrymen
during the abode in Egypt.
poetry of the Ugaritic
texts has been shown to
have close affinities with the Phraseology of the Hebrew Psalms. From
the same sources come references to a class of Temple personnel designated by the term serim, who exercised functions similar to those of the
Hebrew singers during the monarchy and later times. Some of the
servants of David who were designated in 1 Kings 4:31 by (a) term
meaning 'aboriginal' or 'native sons,' and who possessed Canaanite names such as Heman, Chalcol, and Darda, were
engaged in various forms of musical activity.
As such they were described by
the phrase 'sons of Mahol,'
a Hebrew term closely related to (the Greek), used of a
semi-circular area in which the Greek chorus danced, and meaning 'members of the orchestral guild.'
"A further reflection of this
musical interest became apparent when
Megiddo was excavated and the treasure room of
the royal palace was uncovered. From this area was recovered a plaque
inlaid with ivory, depicting a royal personage seated on a throne. He
was drinking from a small bowl, and was being entertained by a
musician who stood
before him plucking the strings
of a lyre."
(See Amos 5; 6; 8)
"With the later days of Solomon
came a resurgence of
Canaanite idolatry, and
when the kingdom began to function as two separate units, the breach
between the religious life of the north and south was accentuated."

335-6, see p. 411).
Ovid Amor 2, 13, 18
Who Memphis visit'st, and the Pharian tower,
Assist Corinna with thy friendly powers.
Thee by thy silver Sistra I conjure,
A life so precious by thy aid secure;
So mayst thou with Osiris still find grace:
By Anubis's venerable face,
I pray thee, so may still thy rights divine
Flourish, and serpents round thy offerings twine
May Apis with his horns the pomp attend,
And be to thee, as thou'rt to her, a friend.
Look down, oh Isis! on the teeming fair,
And make at once her life and mine thy care:
Have pity on her pains; the help you give
To her, her lover saves, in her I live.
From thee this favour she deserves; she pays
Her vows to thee on all thy solemn days;
And when the Galli at thy altars wait,
She's present at the feast they celebrate.

CAIN is parallel accounts spoke of fertility rituals especially those
where the invention of brass (bell metal, serpent sounds) gave the first
THEOLOGIANS seemingly-magical power. They used this power in the
world's oldest profession: the prophesiers, soothsayers, sorcerers power
to mediate with the gods in exchange for other people's property.
Cain gave rise to Jubal, Jabal, Tubal-Cain and Naamah all agents of
witchcraft. In the contemporaneous accounts the Jews would understand
that after musical idolatry at Mount Sinai Moses was inverting the GENUN
composite character to warn those probably already doomed to merge with
the Canaanites (Kenites, Cainites)
Jacob had warned people NOT to associate with, covenant with or attend
the assemblies of LEVI. The Levites were commanded to stand in
ranks and make instrumental noise: any godly person who came near or
into any holy thing or place was to be executed. Remember the Nadab and
The Kenites were adopted as Levites and Ezekiel through the Spirit OF Christ will say that the LEVITES destroyed the nation. Joshepus warns that the Levites
during his time wanted to RESUME their roles as the CAIN of that day:
he warned that they would destroy the nation again. Josephus even
discusses the Sicarri as in Judas Sicarri who
were back stabbers. The Judas Bag was not a purse but "for
carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments." Psalm prophesied
that Judas would try to TRIUMPH OVER Jesus which word means to "blow
instruments and 'make a joyful noise before the Lord'." This was
the Warrior's Panic song as indeed all of the Instrumental Psalms are
parade or BOAST songs.

needed to collect the people back inside of the city gates to protect
his hide from the Assyrians. He proposed a contract with God which was
an exorcism removing all of the Assyrian pollution and instruments from the city. This also involved destroying all of the pagan shrines.
God did not command the Levites to be musical worship ministers: He commanded that they stand in ranks and execute anyone godly person who came inside the gates. The Spirit OF Christ said that God had not commanded sacrifices or burnt offerings when He saved them by grace from Egypt.
the sacrifices of the Goats was to Dionysus and not to Jehovah.
Hezekiah substituted the goats for the INFANTS burned to Moloch before
and after 2 Chronicles 29.
As soon as Hezekiah died, in 2 Chronicles 33 Manasseh began to reign
2Chronicles 33:1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:
2Chronicles 33:2 But did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD,
like unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD had cast out
before the children of Israel.
2Chronicles 33:3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his
father had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made
groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.
2Chronicles 33:4 Also he built altars in the house of the LORD, whereof
the LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.
2Chronicles 33:5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.
2Chronicles 33:6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in
the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used
enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and
with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke
him to anger.
2Chronicles 33:20 So Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they buried
him in his own house: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.
2Chronicles 33:21 Amon was two and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned two years in Jerusalem.
2Chronicles 33:22 But he did that which was evil in the sight of the
LORD, as did Manasseh his father: for Amon sacrificed unto all the
carved images which Manasseh his father had made, and served them;
2Chronicles 33:23 And humbled not himself before the LORD, as Manasseh
his father had humbled himself; but Amon trespassed more and more.
2Chronicles 33:24 And his servants conspired against him, and slew him in his own house.
2Chronicles 33:25 But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon;
and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.
Theologians don't grasp that it was because of
musical idolatry that God turned the nation over to worship the starry
host. That was because of musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity at
Mount Sinai. Later, the elders "fired God and demanded a human king-god." God granted them their wish but warned that the kings would lie, rob, cheat and steal from the people and give the wealth of the nation to the STAFF. The Monarchy did NOT follow the Law of Moses or The Book of the Covenant and were quite ignorant of it. The Laws of DAVID and the laws of the monarchy were NOT the Book of the Covenant which had been placed in the Ark of the Covenant.

images, and the molten images.

2 Chron 34:4 And they brake down the altars of
Baalim in his presence; and the images, that were on high above them,
he cut down; and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten
images, he brake in pieces, and made dust of them, and strowed it
upon the graves of them that had sacrificed unto them.
2 Chron 34:5 And he burnt the bones of the
priests upon their altars, and cleansed Judah and Jerusalem.
2 Chron 34:6 And so did he in the cities of

for great is the wrath of the Lord
that is poured out upon us,

word of the Lord,

2 Chron 34:22 And Hilkiah, and they that the
king had appointed,
went to Huldah the prophetess, [neviyah]
the wife of
Shallum the son of Tikvath, the son of Hasrah,
keeper of the
wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;)
and they spake
to her to that effect.
2Kings 22:14 So Hilkiah the priest, and
Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the
prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas,
keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and
they communed with her.
H4932 mishneh mish-neh' From H8138 ; properly a repetition, that is, a duplicate (copy of a document), or a double (in amount); by implication a second (in order, rank, age, quality or location):college, copy, double, fatlings, next, second (order), twice as much.
She was near, for she dwelt at Jerusalem, in a place called Mishneh, the second rank of buildings from the royal palace.Commentary on the Whole Bible Volume II (Joshua to Esther)
II Kings 22: 14 has Huldah living in Jerusalem in the Mishneh, which the Aramaic Targum renders as study hall, i.e., academy, a place of Torah.Huldah, the Prophet: Midrash and Aggadah.
"Mishneh Torah" ("The Second Law") is the name used in the Bible
itself to designate the book of Deuteronomy, which is a kind summary or
review of the rest of the Torah. Maimonides' Mishneh Torah was intended to be a summary of the entire body of Jewish religious law.
The Mishneh Torah is sometimes referred to as the Yad Ha-Hazaqah, "the mighty arm." This is a play on the numerological value of the Hebrew word for arm, "yad," which is 14, equal to the number of volumes in this code.
Because she was a student of the Word and the clergy was not, she did not need supernatural help to speak the Word of God
2 Chron 34:23 And she answered them, Thus saith
the Lord God of Israel,
Deuteronomy 28:15 But it
shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD
to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I
command thee this day;
that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
Deuteronomy 28:45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee,
shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed;
thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God,
to keep his
commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:
Deuteronomy 29:20 The LORD will not spare him,
but then the anger of the
LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man,
and all the curses
that are written in this book shall lie upon him,
and the LORD shall
blot out his name from under heaven.
Deuteronomy 29:21 And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel,
according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:
Deuteronomy 29:27 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this
to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:
Deuteronomy 30:7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon
and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.
Tell ye the man that sent you to me,
2 Chron 34:24 Thus saith the Lord, Behold,
will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof,
even all the curses that are written in the book
which they have read
before the king of Judah:
Even today if you want to know something written in the Bible you should go to an older lady. Hudah REPEATED the prophecies (promises) from
2 Chron 34:25 Because they have forsaken me,
and have burned incense unto other gods,
that they might provoke me
to anger with all the works of their hands;
therefore my wrath shall
be poured out upon this place,
and shall not be quenched.
Huldah predicted what would happen but she is not a writing prophet.
2 Chron 34:26 And as for the king of Judah, who
sent you to enquire of the Lord, so shall ye say unto him, Thus saith
the Lord God of Israel concerning the words which thou hast
2 Chron 34:27 Because thine heart was tender,
and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his
words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and
humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep
before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the Lord.
Huldah would have known those who heard the curses and decided to
obey would be spared. However, that did not apply to the nation which
did not repent. the Lord still says to anyone who presumes to be a
teacher that unless they can say "thus saith the Lord" then they are
Deuteronomy 29:19 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this
that he bless himself in his heart, saying,
I shall have peace,
though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to
Deuteronomy 29:20 The LORD will not spare him,
but then the anger of the
LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man,
and all the curses
that are written in this book shall lie upon him,
and the LORD shall
blot out his name from under heaven.
2 Chron 34:28 Behold, I will gather thee to thy
fathers, and thou shalt be gathered to thy grave in peace, neither
shall thine eyes see all the evil that I will bring upon this place,
and upon the inhabitants of the same. So they brought the king word
Huldah still prophesies to us when we understand that Deuteronomy is the SECOND LAW which was in addition to The Book of the Covenant. The second law was added because of musical idolatry at mount sinai.

2Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy;

even as there shall be false teachers among you,
