Variant Spellings of MULEK

- Mosiah 25:2

P: Muloch

A: Mulok

- Helaman 6:10b

P: Muleh > Mulek

Discussion: Spelled Muloch in P; and Mulok from A until Orson Pratt's revision in the 1879 edition to Mulek. The scribes often changed ch to k in the text, but never k to ch.

Summary: Skousen thinks the personage should be Muloch; he makes no such statement concerning the city
