the Week of Proper 21 / Ordinary 26
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
CHILMAD occurs in Ezekiel 27:23 at the close of the list of nations that traded with Tyre. The name has been thought to be the Aram. [Note: Aramaic.] form of Charmande , a town on the Euphrates mentioned by Xenophon ( Anab . i. 5. 10). George Smith identified Chilmad with the modern KalwÃ¢dha near Baghdad but neither of these conjectures has much probability.
