Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
Ham, Land of
HAM, LAND OF . A poetical designation of Egypt used in the Psalms in reference to the sojourn there of the Children of Israel ( Psalms 105:23; Psalms 105:27; Psalms 106:22 ). So also ‘the tabernacles (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘tents’) of Ham’ ( Psalms 78:51 ) stands for the dwellings of the Egyptians. The Egyptian etymologies that have been proposed for HÃ¢m are untenable, and the name must be connected with that of the son of Noah.
