MALLOWS ( mallûach , connected with melach ‘salt’), Job 30:4 , RV [Note: Revised Version.] salt-wort. Almost certainly the sea orache ( Atriplex halimus ), a perennial shrub with leaves somewhat like the olive, common in saltish marshes, especially near the Dead Sea, where it is associated with the retem (see Juniper). The sourtasting leaves can he eaten, but only in dire necessity.

E. W. G. Masterman.
