Jo'ächim (Ι᾿ωακείμ), a Graecized form of the Heb. name JEHOIAKIM, and applied in the Apocrypha to
1. The king of Judah, son of Josiah (Bar. 1:3).
2. A priest (ὁ ἱερεύς, A.V. "high priest"), said to be son of Hilkiah at the time of the burning of Jerusalem by the Babylonians (Bar. 1:7). SEE JOACIM, 4. As no such pontiff occurs at this time, SEE HIGH PRIEST, the person intended may perhaps have been not the successor, but only a junior son of Hilkiah — if, indeed, the whole narrative be not spurious. SEE BARUCH.
