B.C. 605. "Michaiah was the third in descent of a princely family, whose names are recorded in connection with important religious transactions.

It was from his father Gemariah's chamber in the Temple that Baruch read the prophecies of Jeremiah in the ears of all the people. Moreover, Gemariah was one of the three who made intercession to king Zedekiah, although in vain. that he would not burn the roll containing Jeremiah's prophecies." (See Jeremiah) .
