Chelod
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
According to Judith 1:6, the “nations of the sons of Chelod” assembled for battle at the command of Nebuchadnezzar (Judith 1:1–6). These sons of Chelod may be related to the Chelleans of Judith 2:23. Most likely this reference to the sons of Chelod in Judith 1:6 should be understood as a variation of the name “Chaldeans.”
