(Heb. MaIlluk', מִלּוּךְ , reigned over, or from the Syr. a counsellor), the name of several men.

1. (Sept. Μαλώχ , Vulg. Maloch.) A Levite of the family of Merari, son of Hashabiah and father of Abdi (1 Chronicles 6:44). B.C. much ante 1014.

2. (Sept. Μαλούχ,Vulg. Melluch.) An Israelite of the descendants (or residents) of Bani who renounced his Gentile wife after the exile (Ezra 10:29). B.C. 459.

3. (Sept. Μαλούχ v. r. Βαλούχ,Vulg. Maloch.) Another Israelite of the descendants (or residents) of Harim, who did the same (Ezra 10:32). B.C. 459.

4. (Sept. Μαλούχ , Vulg. Abelltch.) One of the priests who returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Nehemiah 12:4). B.C. 536. The associated names would appear to indicate that he was the same with one of those who signed the sacred covenant with Nehemiah (Nehemiah 10:4); although that would imply a very advanced age. B.C. cir. 410. He is probably the same with the son of Jonathan, elsewhere called MELICU (Nehemiah 12:14, מְלַוֹכַי Sept. Μαλούχ, Vulg. Milicho).

5. (Sept. Μαλούχ, Vulg. Alelluch.) One of the chief Israelites who subscribed the same covenant (Nehemiah 10:27). B.C. cir. 410.
