Definition
Thayer's
Molech = "king"
  1. the name of the idol god of the Ammonites, to which human victims, particularly young children were offered in sacrifice. Its image was a hollow brazen figure, with the head of an ox, and outstretched human arms. It was heated red hot by a fire from within, and the little ones placed in its arms to be slowly burned, while to prevent the parents from hearing the dying cries, the sacrificing priests beat drums

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This form, as in Matthew 12:20, 1 Corinthians 15:54 f., 1 Corinthians 15:57, 1 Esdras 3:9, occurs in BGU III. 1002.14 (B.C. 55) σαὶ δέ εἰσιν πᾶσαι αἱ κατ᾽ αὐτῶν κείμεναι συνγραφαὶ καὶ ὠναὶ καὶ δίκαια καὶ βέβαια καὶ νῖκος, apparently with reference to victory in a law-suit. According to Wackernagel (Heilenistica, p. 26 f. ) the word is originally related to the poetic νεῖκος, ";strife,"; but passed into Ionic with the meaning of ";victory,"; through the influence of νίκη : see also Fraenkel Glotta iv. (1913) p. 39 ff. Some Lat. MSS. actually translate νῖκος in 1 Corinthians 15:1-58 ll. c. by contentio.
