(chehd awr lay' oh muhr) King of Elam who joined coalition of kings against kings of Sodom and Gomorrah, leading to Abraham's involvement and victory (Genesis 14:1 ). His Elamite name means, “son of La'gamal,” (a god). He apparently led the eastern coalition. He does not appear in the fragmentary Elamite records known today, so nothing else is known except what Genesis 14:1 records. See Elam .
