From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Melchom is a demon or spirit in the Dictionnaire Infernal, Melchom is the god or idol of the Ammonites, otherwise called Moloch, and Melech: which in Hebrew signifies a king, and Melchom signifies their unearthly king. Their king referring to Melchom, their unholy idol.

The Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary reads

"The Ammonite god is said to do what they do, namely, occupy the Israelite land of Gad. To Jehovah, the theocratic "King" of Israel, the land belonged of right; so that their Molech or Melchom was an usurper-king."

[1]

This statement applies that while the ammomites lived in Gad, so did Melchom, but after they were chased from there by the Israelites, Melchom was cast down from his idolic throne, this is the moment when Melchom was embodied as a demon after King David "took his crown". In this new form he is a lesser demon, and is the paymaster of servants in hell. He is known as "he who carries the purse".
