(Hebrew: molech, king)

A divinity worshiped by the idolatrous Israelites, his cult being supposed to have been introduced into Israel by Solomon (3Kings 11); a form of Baal, representing the sun-god in his destructive aspect. His worship consisted of offering human sacrifices, especially children, causing them to "pass through the fire" after they had been put to death (4Kings 16,17).
