There were two Luds; the one the son of Shem, from whom the Lydians of Asia Minor are supposed to have sprung, and the other the son of Mizraim, whose residence was in Africa. The descendants of the latter only are mentioned in Scripture: they are mentioned by Isaiah 66:19 , with Pul, whose settlement is supposed to have been about the island Philoe, near the first cataract of the Nile; by Jeremiah 46:9 , with the Ethiopians and Lybians; by Ezekiel 27:10 , with Phut, as the mercenary soldiers of Tyre, and Ezekiel 30:5 , with the Ethiopians and Libyans; all plainly denoting their African position; but in what particular part of that continent this position was, is not known.
