	Small correction; the Hebrew word for king is Melech (the ch pronounced
like the Scottish "loch"), and the word for queen is Malkah (Malka if
you speak with a Sephardic accent). "Malach" means "messenger", and is
also the term used for angels (in Genesis, if you read "God sent a
messenger" rather than "God sent an angel", there are parts which make
somewhat more sense).

	Certainly not; that is why the Kingdom of Israel divided into the
Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah.

	Always good advice.
