Morrish Bible Dictionary
This name occurs in connection with Babylon, andis supposed to be a symbolical name, signifying 'visitation' or 'punishment,' associated with the name of Merathaim, signifying 'of the rebels,' or 'double rebellion.' That is, that Babylon should be visited by God 'because of its rebellion.' Jeremiah 50:21 . In Ezekiel 23:23 Pekod appears more as a proper name; but it is again associated with Babylon, and the three names Pekod, Shoa, and Koa are all judged to be symbolical names.
