(Heb. ham-Me'lek, הִמֶּלֶךְ ', which is merely מֶלֶךְ', me'lek, king, with the article prefixed; Sept. translates βασιλεύς , Vulg. Amelech), the father of Jerahmeel, which latter was one of those commanded by Jehoiakim to arrest Jeremiah and Baruch (Jeremiah 36:26). B.C. ante 605. It is doubtful whether this was the same with the Hammelech, father of Malchiah, into whose dungeon Jeremiah was afterwards cast (Jeremiah 38:6). B.C. ante 589.'Others, however, regard the word in both cases as an appellative, referring in the first passage to Jehoiakim, and in the latter to Zedekiah. (See HAMMOLEKETH).
