Easton's Bible Dictionary
Huldah

Weasel, a prophetess; the wife of Shallum. She was consulted regarding the "book of the law" discovered by the high priest Hilkiah (2 Kings 22:14-20; 2 Chronicles 34:22-28). She resided in that part of Jerusalem called the Mishneh (A.V., "the college;" R.V., "the second quarter"), supposed by some to be the suburb between the inner and the outer wall, the second or lower city, Akra. Miriam (Exodus 15:20) and Deborah (Judges 4:4) are the only others who bear the title of "prophetess," for the word in Isaiah 8:3 means only the prophet's wife.
