    Hammelech in Easton's Bible Dictionary the king's, the father of Jerahmeel, mentioned in Jer. 36:26. Some take this word as a common noun, "the king", and understand that Jerahmeel was Jehoiakim's son. Probably, however, it is to be taken as a proper name.

    Hammelech in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Jeremiah 36:26; Jeremiah 38:6. Jehoiakim at this time (the fifth year of his reign) had no grown up son. Jeconiah his successor was then but eleven (2 Kings 23:36; compare 2 Kings 24:8). We must not then, with Smith's Bible Dictionary, translated "the king," but as a proper name, Hammelech, father of Jerahmeel and Malchiah.
