CHELOD ke’ lŏd (Χελεούδ). According to older trs. “many nations of the sons of Chelod assembled” (ASV), with others supporting Nebuchadnezzar against Arphaxad. However, the RSV tr. the word as “Chaldeans” with whom the “many nations” joined (Judg 1:6).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

In Judith 1:6 it is said that "many nations of the sons of Chelod assembled themselves to the battle." They are mentioned as obeying the summons of Nebuchadnezzar to his war against Arphaxad. No very probable suggestion has been made as to the meaning of Chelod.
