a His son Berechiah was one "of the heads of the children of Ephraim," who stood against the Israelites who had carried away captive their brethren of the children of Judah, and induced them to let the captives return to their own homes (II Chron. 28:12). b Descendants of another Meshillemoth are named among priests who returned from the Babylonian captivity (Neh. 11:13).

Meta. That in man's natural religious tendencies (a priest of Israel), and in his executive faculty (Ephraim, signifying the will), which perceives the perfect justice of, and equilibrium to be attained by, the divine law of sowing and reaping (recompenses, retributions, restorations).
