MIKLOTH mĭk’ lŏth (מִקְלֹ֖ות). 1. A descendant of the Benjaminite Jeiel, who lived at Gibeon, and the father of Shimeah (1 Chron 8:32; 9:37, 38). When the two passages are compared, it is apparent that the name Mikloth has been dropped at the end of 1 Chronicles 8:31.

2. An officer who served under Dodai the Ahohite in the army of David (1 Chron 27:4 RSVmg.). The words, “and his division and Mikloth the chief officer,” are omitted in the RSV, although the KJV and ASV have similar statements.
