Easton's Bible Dictionary - Pekod
Probably a place in Babylonia (Jeremiah 50:21 ; Ezekiel 23:23 ). It is the opinion, however, of some that this word signifies "visitation," "punishment," and allegorically "designates Babylon as the city which was to be destroyed."

Hitchcock's Bible Names - Pekod
Noble; rulers
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Pekod
("visitation".) Jeremiah 50:21. Symbolical name for Babylon as doomed to be visited with judgment. In Ezekiel 23:23 simply a prefecture. Maurer translated, as descriptive epithets subjoined to "all the Chaldaeans," Ρekod (pakid ), Shoa , Κoa , "prefects, rich, princely." Otherwise, if a symbolical name here also, Pekod is "inflicter of," "visiting with, judgment," namely, upon Judah, "Aholibah."
