Ammonites

Additional Links

A tribe racially allied to the Hebrews, settled east of the Jordan. They practised the idolatries and abominations common to Semitic races, and their god was called Milcom, another form of Moloch. They were held in special loathing by the Hebrews, and, when converted to Hebraism, were barred from the Tabernacle together with their children, even after the tenth generation. In the time of Judas Machabeus, they were still a strong people, whom he subdued with difficulty.
