Jeremiah was one of the prophets whom God used to deliver a message of pending doom upon a nation which had refused to heed his commands. And when the people heard the unpleasant news, some of the leaders of Judah wanted to kill Jeremiah. One such man was named Jehucal the son of Shelemiah, a high-ranking prince who served under King Zedekiah.
A seal impression once made by Jehucal was recently uncovered in Jerusalem which proves that he lived shortly before the destruction of the city by the Baby-lonians.
