A short Hebrew word study on HaMelech, the King, looking at both the Old Testament and New Testament to discover and declare that our God reigns - forever!

HaMelech. This name of our God tells us something majestic: He reigns!

He is HaMelech – The King.
(Ha = The; Melech = King)

Melech, or malak, is the most common word in the Old Testament for a ruler. As well as being translated ‘king’, as in Psalm 98, it can also be translated as ‘prince’, ‘ruler’, ‘chief’ and ‘captain’. It carries the weight of one who is in charge of others, and whose influence and power is high above anyone else’s.

With trumpets and the sound of the horn
Shout joyfully before the King, the Lord. (Psalm 98:6)

Earthly kings are numerous in and out of Scripture. History is littered with both merry and mean monarchs whose reigns lasted for years, or even a matter of days.

But our God HaMelech is different…
