Molech = "king"
  1. the name of the idol god of the Ammonites, to which human victims, particularly young children were offered in sacrifice.

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
