This word occurs only in Job 30:4 KJV (Revised King James Version, “saltwort”). The word so rendered (malluah, from melah, “salt”) most probably denotes the Atriplex halimus of Linnaeus, a species of sea purslane found on the shores of the Dead Sea, as also of the Mediterranean, and in salt marshes.
It is a tall shrubby orach, growing to the height sometimes of 10 feet.
