Ludim

Ludim

Ludim, in the Bible, an African people, unknown unless Ludim is a textual error for Lubim. See Lud.
Ludim is the Hebrew term for Lydia used in Jeremiah and Ezekiel. In the Biblical Table of Nations they were said to descend from Lud, son of Shem, son of Noah. According to Josephus, their land was destroyed.

These Ludim should not be confused with another group also named Ludim who were descended from Mizraim. This is sometimes thought to be a typographic error for Lubim, in reference to Libyans.
