Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Moladah
MOLADAH. A city reckoned to Judah in Joshua 15:26 , and to Simeon in Joshua 19:2 , 1 Chronicles 4:28 . It is in no way related to Tell el-Milh , ‘hill of salt,’ with which Robinson and others have identified it. Probably it lay near Beersheba, but the site has not been recovered.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Moladah

Holman Bible Dictionary - Moladah
(moh lay' duh) Place name meaning, “generation.” City near Beersheba in southern Judah assigned both to Judah (Joshua 15:26 ) and to Simeon (Joshua 19:2 ), perhaps reflecting the political realities of different times or the dependence of Simeon on Judah. The similarity to the name Molid suggests that Moladah was a Jerahmeelite settlement (1 Samuel 27:10 ; 1 Chronicles 2:29 ). The city was among those repopulated by Jews returning from Exile (Nehemiah 11:26 ). Moladah is perhaps identical to the Edomite village of Malathah which served as a retreat for Herod Agrippa I. Various sites have been proposed: khirbet Kuseifeh twelve miles east of Beersheba; tell el-Milh southeast of Beersheba; and khereibet el-Waten east of Beersheba.
