Nebuchadnezzar in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
In the monuments Nabu-juduri-utsur, the middle syllable being
the same as Kudur or Chedor-laomer. Explained by Gesenius "the
prince favored by Nebo"; Oppert, "Nebo, kadr ("power"), and
zar ("prince")"; Rawlinson, "Nebo his protector (participle
from naatsar "protect") against misfortune" (kidor "trouble".)
His father Nabo-polassar having overthrown Nineveh, Babylon
became supreme. Married his father's Median ally, Cyaxares'
daughter, Amuhia, at the time of their alliance against
Assyria 625 B.C. (Abydenus in Eusebius, Chronicles Can., i.
9). Possibly is the Labynetus (Herodotus i. 74) who led the
Babylonian force under Cyaxares in his Lydian war and whose
interposition at the eclipse (610 B.C.) concluded the
campaign. Sent by Nabopolassar to punish Pharaoh Necho, the
conqueror of Josiah at Megiddo. Defeated Necho at Carchemish
(605 B.C.) and wrested from him all the territory from
Euphrates to Egypt (Jeremiah 46:2; Jeremiah 46:12; 2 Kings
24:7) which he had held for three years, so that "he came not
again any more out of his land."...
