Olavarria Posted February 7, 2010 Share Posted February 7, 2010 Helaman 8:2121) And now will you dispute that Jerusalem was destroyed? Will ye say that the sons of Zedekiah were not slain, all except it were Mulek? Yea, and do ye not behold that the seed of Zedekiah are with us, and they were driven out of the land of Jerusalem? But behold, this is not all?Jeremiah 38:66) Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire.The Hebrew phrase that is "translated" as Malchiah son of Hammelech is actually MalkiYahu ben-ha-Melek(????????????? ???-????????? ). In Hebrew, this means "MalkiYahu, Son of the King".But was this MalkiYahu(?????????????) the same person as Mulek? Maybe. In the case of Baruch the scribe of Jeremiah(Jer.36), the long form of his name is BerekYahu. If BerekYahu can be shortened to Baruchthen MalkiYahu could concievably be shortened to Mulek.Notes (1)"New Information about Mulek, Son of the King" by Robert F.
