Ludites
Ludim is the Hebrew term for a people mentioned in Jeremiah and Ezekiel. In the Biblical Table of Nations Genesis 10:13 they were descended from Mizraim. The biblical scholar Victor P. Hamilton believes that the available evidence "suggests" that the Ludim are the Lydians.[1] According to Josephus, their land was in Libya
Libya
which was west of Egypt near the tribes of Phut
Phut
in the land of the Moors towards the extreme west of Africa and the Atlantic Ocean.[2] Pliny in his natural history mentions the river Laud along south of the Atlas mountains
Atlas mountains
near the river Fut (Phut).[3] These Ludim should not be confused with another group who were said to descend from Lud, son of Shem, son of Noah. Ludim is sometimes thought to be a scribal error for Lubim, in reference to Libyans. References[edit]^ Victor P. Hamilton (31 October 1990)

Pliny the Elder
(born Gaius Plinius Secundus, AD 23–79) was a Roman author, naturalist and natural philosopher, a naval and army commander of the early Roman Empire, and friend of emperor Vespasian.

of Jeremiah
Jeremiah
(Hebrew: ספר יִרְמְיָהוּ‎; abbreviated Jer. or Jerm. in citations) is the second of the Latter Prophets in the Hebrew Bible, and the second of the Prophets in the Christian

Old Testament.[1] The superscription at chapter 1:1–3 identifies it as "the words of Jeremiah

in 627 BC through to the assassination of the Babylonian-appointed governor of Judah in 582.[1] Of all the prophets, Jeremiah

of Ezekiel
Ezekiel
is the third of the Latter Prophets in the Tanakh and one of the major prophetic books in the Old Testament, following Isaiah and Jeremiah.[1] According to the book itself, it records six visions of the prophet Ezekiel, exiled in Babylon, during the 22 years 593–571 BC, although it is the product of a long and complex history and does not necessarily preserve the very words of the prophet.[2] The visions, and the book, are structured around three themes: (1) Judgment on Israel
Israel
(chapters 1–24); (2) Judgment on the nations (chapters 25–32); and (3) Future blessings for Israel
Israel
(chapters 33–48).[3] Its themes include the concepts of the presence of God, purity, Israel

as a divine community, and individual responsibility to God
