Discussion: In Alma 33:15, Cowdery first wrote Zenock, then he crossed it out and wrote Zenoch in O. In Alma 34:7, Zenoch is the spelling. In Helaman 8:20, Cowdery intended to write the name in P as Zenock. His k here looks almost like an h, so that the 1830 compositor set as Zenoch. The -ck ending is not found in any biblical or other Book of Mormon names, but -ch is.

Summary: Skousen accepts Zenoch
