Adrammelech, 1

Adram´melech is mentioned, together with Anammelech, in 2 Kings 17:31, as one of the idols whose worship the inhabitants of Sepharvaim established in Samaria, when they were transferred thither by the king of Assyria, and whom they worshipped by the sacrifice of their children by fire. This constitutes the whole of our certain knowledge of this idol.
