SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:14 Entonces fue Hilcías el sacerdote, y Ahicam y Acbor y Safán y Asaías, a Hulda profetisa, mujer de Salum hijo de Ticva hijo de Harhas, guarda de las vestiduras, la cual moraba en Jerusalén en la casa de la doctrina, y hablaron con ella.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 22:14 Verse 14. Went unto Huldah the prophetess] This is a most singular circumstance: At this time Jeremiah was certainly a prophet in Israel, but it is likely he now dwelt at Anathoth. and could not be readily consulted; Zephaniah also prophesied under this reign, but probably he had not yet begun; Hilkiah was high priest, and the priest's lips should retain knowledge. Shaphan was scribe, and must have been conversant in sacred affairs to have been at all fit for his office; and yet Huldah, a prophetess, of whom we know nothing but by this circumstance, is consulted on the meaning of the book of the law; for the secret of the Lord was neither with Hilkiah the high priest, Shaphan the scribe, nor any other of the servants of the king, or ministers of the temple! We find from this, and we have many facts in all ages to corroborate it, that a pontiff, a pope, a bishop, or a priest, may, in some cases, not possess the true knowledge of God; and that a simple woman, possessing the life of God in her soul, may have more knowledge of the Divine testimonies than many of those whose office it is to explain and enforce them.
On this subject Dr. Priestley in his note makes the following very judicious remark:-"It pleased God to distinguish several women with the spirit of prophecy, as well as other great attainments, to show that in his sight, and especially in things of a spiritual nature, there is no essential pre- eminence in the male sex, though in some things the female be subject to the male."
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 14. So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went down to Huldah the prophetess , etc.] Such as were Miriam and Deborah; in imitation of those Satan had very early his women prophetesses, the Sibyls, so called from their being the council and oracle of God, and consulted as such on occasion, as Huldah now was; and the first of the Sibyls, according to Suidas f257 , was a Chaldean or a Persian; and some say an Hebrew; and Pausanias expressly says f258 , that with the Hebrews above Palestine was a woman prophetess, whose name was Sabba, whom some called the Babylonian, others the Egyptian Sibyl.
Aelian relates that one of them was a Jewess: the wife of Shallum, the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe ; but whether the king’s wardrobe in the palace, or the priest’s in the temple, is not certain; he is called Hasrah, ( 2 Chronicles 34:22) who is here called Harhas: now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college ; in the college of the prophets; in the house of instruction, as the Targum; the school where the young prophets were instructed and trained up; though Jarchi observes, that some interpret this “within the two walls”; Jerusalem it seems had three walls, and within the second this woman lived; there were gates in the temple, as he also observes, called the gates of Huldah f260 , but whether from her cannot be said: this place of her dwelling seems to be mentioned as a reason why these messengers went to her, because she was near, as well as well known for her prophetic spirit, prudence, and faithfulness, and not to Jeremiah, who in all probability was at Anathoth; and so also is the reason why they went not to Zephaniah, if he as yet had begun to prophesy, because he might be at a distance also: and they communed with her; upon the subject the king sent them about.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-20 - The book of the law is read before the king. Those best honour their Bibles, who study them; daily feed on that bread, and walk by tha light. Convictions of sin and wrath should put us upon this inquiry What shall we do to be saved? Also, what we may expect, and mus provide for. Those who are truly apprehensive of the weight of God' wrath, cannot but be very anxious how they may be saved. Huldah le Josiah know what judgments God had in store for Judah and Jerusalem The generality of the people were hardened, and their hearts unhumbled but Josiah's heart was tender. This is tenderness of heart, and thus he humbled himself before the Lord. Those who most fear God's wrath, ar least likely to feel it. Though Josiah was mortally wounded in battle yet he died in peace with God, and went to glory. Whatever such person suffer or witness, they are gathered to the grave in peace, and shal enter into the rest which remaineth for the people of God __________________________________________________________________
