Jacob Alting (27 September 1618 – 20 August 1679) was a Dutch philologist and theologian. He was professor at the University of Groningen: in 1643 in oriental languages and in 1667 in theology. His publications were overseen in 1687 by Balthasar Bekker.

Alting was born in Heidelberg, where his father Hendrik Alting was a professor. The 1618/1619 Synod of Dort forced the family to move to Leiden in 1622 and to Groningen in 1627.
