(mihr oh' dak) Hebrew form of Marduk, the chief god of Babylon, also called Bel, corresponding to the Semitic Baal or “Lord” (Jeremiah 50:2 ). Merodach is an element in the names of the Babylonian kings Merodach-baladan (2 Kings 20:12 ; Isaiah 39:1 ) and Evil-Merodach (2 Kings 25:27 ; Jeremiah 52:31 ). With a different vocalization, Merodach yields the name Mordecai (Esther 2:5 ). See Gods, Pagan .
