Huldah (hŭlˈdə) [key], in the Bible, prophetess, consulted by Josiah, King of Judah (640–609 B.C.) on the finding of the Law. She prophesied that divine judgment would fall on Judah, but that Josiah would die in peace before that judgment fell. While the first part of her prophecy was fulfilled, Josiah died in battle.
