Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַלְמוֹדָד Genesis 10:26; 1 Chronicles 1:20 [Almodad], pr.n. of a son of Joktan, i.e. of a people and region of southern Arabia [so called from this person]. If there were an ancient error in reading (for אלמורד), we might compare Morad مراد or بنى مراد the name of a tribe living in a mountainous region of Arabian Felix, near Zabid.
