Tidal

TIDAL . A king of Goiim, or ‘the nations,’ who accompanied Amraphel of Shinar and Arioch of Ellasar in the expedition made by Chedorlaomer of Elam against Sodom and the cities of the plain ( Genesis 14:1 ). This name is probably the Tudhul or Tudhula of a British Museum tablet of late date, which mentions also Kudur-lahmal (?) (Chedorlaomer?) and Durmah-îlâni son of Eri-Eaku (Arioch?). Tudbul is stated to have been son of Gazza[ni?]. Whether it was he who smote (shattered) his father’s head ‘with the weapon of his hands,’ the mutilation of the text leaves uncertain.
