Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מְלֶכֶת f. of the Chald. form מְלֵךְ (as on the contrary מַלְכָּה from מֶלֶךְ), a queen. It only occurs, Jeremiah 7:18 -44:1719, 25 Jeremiah 44:25, in which passages מְלֶכֶת הַשָּׁמַיִם “the queen of heaven,” to whom the women of Israel paid divine honours, is either the moon, or Astarte (עַשְׁתֹּרֶת), i.e. the planet Venus. So the LXX. have rendered in chap. 44, and Vulg. always. However not a few copies write fully מְלֶאכֶת worship, i.e. abstr. prop. concr. deity, goddess (of heaven), in like manner the Syriac translator renders it ܕܫܰܡܰܝܳܐ ܦܘܽܠܚܢܳ the worship of heaven.
