Mil'cah (Heb. Milkah', מַלכָּה, advice; Sept. Μελχά), the name of two women.

1. The daughter of Haran, and sister of Lot and Iscah (or Sarah); she married Nahor (Ge 12:20), by whom she had eight sons (Ge 20:18,18), one of whom was Bethuel, the father of Rebekah (Ge 24:15,24,47). She was thus Abraham's sister-in-law, and the grandmother of Isaac's wife. B.C. cir. 2047.
