(uh cehl' duh muh) KJV spelling for Akeldama. The field Judas Iscariot purchased, where he killed himself (Acts 1:19 ). The name is Aramaic and means “field of blood.” Evidently it was purchased with the money that had been paid to Judas for betraying Jesus. According to Matthew 27:7 , the field purchased with this money was used for the burial of strangers. See Judas .
