OccurrencesActs 1:18 Now this man obtained a field with the reward for his wickedness, and falling headlong, his body burst open, and all his intestines gushed out.
Acts 1:19 It became known to everyone who lived in Jerusalem that in their language that field was called'Akeldama,' that is,'The field of blood.'
a-kel'-da-ma (Akeldama, or, in many manuscripts, Akeldamach; the King James Version, Aceldama): A field said in Acts 1:19 to have been bought by Judas with the "thirty pieces of silver." In Matthew 27:6, 7 it is narrated that the priests took the silver pieces which Judas had "cast down. into the sanctuary" and "bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day." Doubtless it was a supposed connection between this potter's field and the potter's house (Jeremiah 18:2) and the Valley of the Son of Hinnom (Jeremiah 19:2) which influenced the selection of the present site which, like the Aramaic h-q-l-d-m-' (Dalman), is today known as haqq-ed-dumm, "field of blood."
ACELDAMA (pron. a-sel'da-ma), a field on the s. slope of the valley of Hinnom, 3/4 of a mile s. of Jerusalem.
