Pil'dash (Heb. Pildash', פַּלדָּשׁ, according to Furst, for פֶּלֶד אֵשׁ, flame of fire; Sept. Φαλδές), the sixth named of the eight sons of Nahor, Abraham's brother, by his niece and wife, Milcah (Ge 22:22). B.C. cir. 2046. "The settlement of his descendants has not been identified with any degree of probability. Bunsen (Bibelwerk, Ge 22:22) compares Ripalthas, a place in the north-east of Mesopotamia; but the resemblance of the two names is probably accidental" (Smith).
