Ti´dal (veneration), one of the allies who with Chedorlaomer invaded Palestine in the time of Abraham (). Tidal bears the somewhat singular title of 'king of nations' or 'Gentiles' (goyim). We cannot tell who these Goyim were over whom Tidal ruled; but it seems probable that he was a chief of several confederated tribes, whose military force he contributed to the expedition of Chedorlaomer.
