MAHLON

ma'-lon (machlon, "invalid"): Ruth's first husband (Ruth 12, 5; 4:9, 10). In the latter passage is further evidence of the unwillingness to allow a family connection or inheritance to drop (see MAHLAH; MAHLI). Note that David's descent and that of his "Greater Son" come through Ruth and Boaz (Ruth 4:22).
