We know from other parts of the Bible that child sacrifice was practiced by various nations in Biblical times: "And the Avites made Nibhaz and Tartak, and the Sepharvites burnt their children in the fire to Adrammelech
and Anammelech, the gods of the Sepharvaim." (2 Kings 18:31) We are even presented with one account where child sacrifice actually works: And when the king of Moab saw that the battle was too sore for him, he took with him seven hundred men that drew swords, to break through even unto the king of Edom: but they could not.
Thus, we meet with "Amurru" and with "Mulissu," allegedly because they are embedded in the formations of name (respectively, Amraphel and Adrammelech
), "Atum" because it is linked to Pithom, "Apkallu" because they remind of Nephilim, "Misharu" because of a poetic usage of Hebrew misor.
