Easton's Bible Dictionary - Ludim
Probably the same as Lud (2) (Compare Genesis 10:13 ; 1 Chronicles 1:11 ). They are associated (Jeremiah 46:9 ) with African nations as mercenaries of the king of Egypt.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Ludim
Genesis 10:13. From Mizraim; therefore not the same as Lud, who was Semitic (Isaiah 66:19), but Hamitic. (See LUD.) The Egyptian "Retu," the old inhabitants of central Egypt. They are Africans evidently in Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 30:4-5; near Phut or Nubia: "the Libyans (Phut) that handle the shield, and the Lydians that handle and bend the bow"; the foot was pressed on the center, and the hands held the two ends, so "handle and bend" are both said. The Egyptian monuments confirm Scripture accuracy. The Rebu appear with small round shields, and the Ludim being Africans naturally excel in archery, for which Africa was famous.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Lud, Ludim
LUD, LUDIM. Usually supposed to stand for the country and people of Lydia (wh. see). In Genesis 10:22 ( 1 Chronicles 1:17 ) Lud is named as one of the ‘sons’ of Shem, along with the well-known Elam, Asshur, and Aram, and the uncertain Arpachshad. In this list the Elamites at least are not Semitic, but are regarded as such by reason of association with the Babylonians. In a similar way the Lydians may be associated here with the Semitic Assyrians, whose rule once extended to the borders of the Lydian empire. No better explanation has been given, and they are at any rate an Asiatic people.

On the other hand, Ludim is given as the name of one of the descendants of Mizraim (Egypt) in Genesis 10:13 ( 1 Chronicles 1:11 ) in a list of peoples all undoubtedly African. Here there can be no question of Asiatic Lydians, and experts are divided as to whether an unknown African people is referred to, or whether we are to read Lubim (wh. see). This reading would suit equally well Jeremiah 46:9 , and even the singular form Lud might with advantage be emended into Lub in Ezekiel 27:10 ; Ezekiel 30:5 , Isaiah 66:19 .

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Ludim
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.

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Ludim

lu'Dim - (strife ), ( Genesis 10:13 ; 1 Chronicles 1:11 ) a Mizraite people or tribe descended from Ludim the son of Mizraim; also called Lydians. It is probable that the Ludim were settled to the west of Egypt, perhaps farther than any other Mizraite tribe. Lud and the Ludim are mentioned in four passages of the prophets -- (Isaiah 66:19 ; Jeremiah 46:9 ; Ezekiel 27:10 ; 38:5 ) There call be no doubt that but one nation is intended in these passages, and it seems that the preponderance of evidence is in favor of the Mizaraite Ludim
