Jaudi
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A small kingdom in Syria (or Aram) mentioned in inscriptions of Tiglath-pileser III. The odd statement in 2 Kgs 14:28 that the Israelite king Jeroboam II took control of Syrian cities such as Damascus and Hamath “for Judah in Israel” may reflect a scribal error for a reference to Jaudi. During this period, Judah was a separate kingdom, and Israel was the stronger of the two. The Peshitta omits the reference to Judah, saying the cities were restored “to Israel.” But it is unclear whether the translation reflects a different Hebrew text since the Syriac translator may have been correcting the incongruous reference to Judah.
