The girl next door

Elijah let the beginnings of a smile play at the corners of his mouth. “I’m going to marry Milkah.” (01 Caravan)

Milkah מִלְכָּ֔ה in the Bible means “counsel.”

The first Milkah was the wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother. See Genesis 11:29 and 22:20.

She was the grandmother of beautiful Rebekah who married Isaac, the long-awaited promised son of Abraham.

The next Milkah was the daughter of Zelophehad. Numbers 26:33 and 27:11.

She and her sisters — Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, and Tirzah — won the right for daughters to inherit their father’s land.

Numbers 27:7 – “Zelophehad’s daughters are right.”

Which one do you think is Milkah?
