Che'lod (Χελεούδ v. r. Χελεούλ, Vulg. omits, old Lat. ver. Chelleuth, Syr. "Chaldaeans"). "Many nations of the sons of Chelod" were among those who obeyed the summons of Nabuchodonosor to his war with Arphaxad (Judith 1:6). The word is apparently corrupt (see Fritzsche, Exeg. Handb. in loc.). Simonis suggests Χαλών, i.e. CALNEH, perh. Ctesiphon. Ewald (Gesch. Isr. III, 2:543) conjectures it to be a nickname for the Syrians, "'sons of the mole" (חֹלֵר, choled´).
