Son of Shaphan the scribe. Ahikam was sent with several others to the prophetess Huldah to learn more about the book of the law that had been found (II Kings 22:12); he took Jeremiah's part, and protected him (Jer. 26:24; 39:14). Gedaliah was his son.

Meta. A certain spiritual awakening, an elevation and stabilization of thought, and a revivifying of soul that take place in the consciousness of man (my brother has arisen, brother of rising, i. e., standing, brother who rises and stands) and cause him to search earnestly to learn more about the great law of Being, that he may harmonize himself with it and so escape having to reap the disastrous results of error.
