Rosh

Additional Links

ROSH . 1 . A descendant of Benjamin ( Genesis 46:21 [text doubtful]). 2 . In Ezekiel 38:2 f., Ezekiel 39:1 the word Rosh is thought by many interpreters to refer to a people, otherwise unknown, but coupled with Meshech and Tubal (wh. see). It is possible, however, that the word meaning ‘bead’ is used as a preposition ‘over,’ so that the phrase here applied to Gog (wh. see) simply means, ‘prince over Meshech and Tubal’; cf. AVm [Note: Authorized Version margin.] .
