(Heb. Maraalah', מִרְעֲלָה, a trembling; Sept. Μαραλά ), a place on the southern boundary of Zebulon, but apparently within the bounds of Issachar, west of Sarid and east of Dabbasheth (Joshua 19:11). These indications point to some locality not far from the present Mujeidil, although the name would seem to agree better with that of the neighboring site, Melul. The latter place agrees with the identification of Porter, who remarks that Malul is a little village about four miles south-west of Nazareth, on the top of a hill, containing the ruins of a temple, and other vestiges of antiquity. In the surrounding rocks and cliffs are some excavated tombs (Handbook, p. 385). (See NAHALAL).
