  • The daughter of Ishmael, the last of Esau's three wives (Genesis 36:3,4,13 ), from whose son Reuel four tribes of the Edomites sprung. She is also called Mahalath (Genesis 28:9 ). It is noticeable that Esau's three wives receive different names in the genealogical table of the Edomites (Genesis 36 ) from those given to them in the history (Genesis 26:34 ; 28:9 ).

  • A daughter of Solomon, and wife of Ahimaaz, one of his officers (1 Kings 4:15 ).
