Mahalalel, Mahalaleel, or Mihlaiel Arabic: مهلائيل‎ (Hebrew: מהללאל, Modern {{{2}}} Tiberian {{{3}}}) was a patriarch named in the Hebrew Bible. He was the son of Kenan, son of Enos, son of Seth, son of Adam in the Old Testament of the Bible. He was also the father of Jared and the grandfather of Enoch.

He appears in the Book of Genesis 5:12-17, and according to the book, he lived 895 years, placing him eighth in the records for the unusually long lifespans related in that book for the antediluvian patriarchs.

Later references to Mahalalel include Jubilees 4:14–15 and Luke 3:37. Enoch’s first Dream Vision in 1 Enoch 83 recounts the dream that Enoch had in the house of Mahalalel his grandfather, and which Mahalalel explains to him.
