Around the year that Josiah came to the throne of Judah, Jeremiah, son of Hilkiah, a priest of the lineage of Abiathar, was born in Anathoth, a village surrounded by almond groves set on a hill a half hour’s walk northeast of Jerusalem. By his own testimony, he believed Yahweh called him from the womb to be a prophet. ” But Yahweh replied, “Do not say, ‘I am only a child,’ for you must go to all to whom I send you and say whatever I command you.
The people of the land, however, rose up against the coup d’état, executed the assassins, and made his young son Josiah king. 5 The kingdom Josiah inherited had been a vassal kingdom to Assyria since the days of his great-grandfather Hezekiah.
