Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יְהוּדָה (verbal from fut. Hoph. “praised,” comp. Genesis 49:6), pr.n. Judah, borne by

(1) the fourth son of Jacob, Genesis 29:35, 35:23 and the tribe springing from him (בְּנֵי יְהוּדָה), Numbers 7:12; Joshua 11:21, etc., the boundaries of which are described, Jos 15:1-63. הַר יְהוּדָה the mountain district of Judah; see חַר p. 230. After the division of the kingdom, the name of this tribe was applied to one of the kingdoms which included the tribes of Judah and Benjamin with a portion of Simeon and Dan, and had Jerusalem for its metropolis; the other kingdom was either called יִשְׂרָאֵל or (especially in the prophets) אֶפְרַיִם. אַדְמַת יְהוּדָה the land of Judah, the kingdom of Judah, Isaiah 19:17. עִיר יְהוּדָה the (capital) of Judah, i.e. Jerusalem, 2 Chronicles 25:28, i.q. עִיר דָּוִד 2 Kings 14:20. After the carrying away of the ten tribes, and after the Babylonian exile, this name is applied to the whole land of Israel, Haggai 1:1, 14 Haggai 1:14, 2:2. Where it signifies the land (Judæa) יְהוּדָה is fem., Psalms 114:2 where the people (the Jews [or tribe of Judah]) masc., Isaiah 3:8 The same name was borne by

(2) other more obscure persons

(a) Nehemiah 11:9.

(b) Ezra 3:9; Nehemiah 12:8.

(c) Nehemiah 12:34.

(d) ib. verse 36.
