MILCAH ():

1. Daughter of Haran, and wife of her uncle Nahor (Gen. xi. 29). She bore eight sons, the youngest of whom was Bethuel, father of Rebekah (ib. xxii. 21-23). Ibn Ezra commentary on Gen. xi. 29) thinks that Haran, Milcah's father, was a different person from Haran, Abraham's brother, and consequently that Milcah's husband was not her uncle. 2. Fourth daughter of Zelophehad (Num. xxvi. 33).
