Chemosh
To subdue, the powerful, subduer
Strong's #H3645

Chemosh was the name of the chief pagan god of the Moabites. The Israelites, including King Solomon, indulged in idolatry by worshipping this false deity. Solomon's worship of this and other false gods was the primary reason Israel was split into two separate kingdoms after his death (1Kings 11:11, 29 - 32)!
