Who is Bakbukiah?
        (destruction from Jehovah), a Levite, Neh 11:17; Neh 12:9, Neh 12:25. Arabian Bake Oven. ( After Niebuhr.) BAKE The business of baking in early times was principally, if not exclusively, the work of women. Lev 26:26; 1 Sam 8:13; 2 Sam 13:8; Jer 7:18. In Rome, as Pliny tells us, there was no such thing as a public baker for 580 years. It seems probable from Jer 37:21 and Hos 7:4-7 that public bakers were known in their day, and inhabited a particular section of the city of Jerusalem. See Bread, Oven.
