PILDASH (pĭl'dăsh, Heb. pildash). Sixth son of Nahor, Abraham’s brother (Gen.22.22).

PILDASH pĭl’ dăsh (פִּלְדָּ֖שׁ, meaning unknown). Perhaps the name stems from the Hebrew word meaning iron, and therefore implies the strength, or the glint or reflected light of iron (see Nah 2:4).

Sixth son of Nahor (the brother of Abraham) and Milcah (Gen 22:22).
