Moladah

Moladah [E] [H]

(birth, race ), a city of Judah, one of those which lay in the district of "the south." ( Joshua 15:26 ; 19:2 ) In the latter tribe it remained at any rate till the reign of David, ( 1 Chronicles 4:28 ) but by the time of the captivity it seems to have come back into the hands of Judah, by whom it was reinhabited after the captivity. ( Nehemiah 11:26 ) It may be placed at el-Milh , which is about 4 English miles from Tell Arad , 17 or 18 from Hebron, and 9 or 10 due east of Beersheba.
