Easton's Bible Dictionary

Mahlah:

disease, one of the five daughters of Zelophehad (Num 27:1-11) who had their father's inheritance, the law of inheritance having been altered in their favour.

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Mahlah:

Mahli, Mahlon, same as Mahali

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Mahlah:

ma'-la (machlah "sickness" or "song," etymology doubtful):

(1) Eldest of Zelophehad's 5 daughters (Nu 26:33; 27:1). As Zelophehad, grandson of Manasseh, had no sons, the daughters successfully claimed their father's inheritance. The law was altered in their favor on condition that they married into their father's tribe. They agreed and married their cousins (Nu 36:11). The whole chapter should be read and compared with Jos 17:3 ff, because the decision became a precedent.

(2) Another (the King James Version "Mahalah"), same Hebrew name as above, daughter of Hammoleketh, grand-daughter of Manasseh (1Ch 7:18).



Written by Henry Wallace

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Mahlah:

(disease) the eldest of the five daughters of Zelophehad the grandson of Manasseh (Numbers 27:1-11).
