ARIOCH

(ehr' i ahch) Personal, probably Hurrian, name meaning, “servant of the moon god.” 1. King of Ellasar, who joined alliance against Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 14:1) but was eventually defeated by Abraham. See Amraphel, Ellasar. Parallel names have been found in early Akkadian documents and at Mari and Nuzi, but no other reference to the biblical Arioch can be shown. 2. Commander of bodyguard of King Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2:14-25). He confided in Daniel, who was able to interpret the king's forgotten dream and prevent the death of the wise counselors of Babylon.
