  • Discussion: In all five instances of this name, it is spelled Judeah by Cowdery in all extant sources of O and P. The h was probably put on the end because of JUDAH. Although the spelling Judeah may actually be correct for the biblical name, it is spelled there as Judea. The Book of Mormon name seems to derive from the biblical name, and should probably be spelled Judea as well.
