ma´lon ( מחלון , maḥlōn , "invalid"): Ruth's first husband ( Ruth 12,5; Rth 4:9, Rth 4:10). In the latter passage is further evidence of the unwillingness to allow a family connection or inheritance to drop (see MAHLAH; MAHLI ). Note that David's descent and that of his "Greater Son" come through Ruth and Boaz (Rth 4:22).
