Pa'dan-a'ram. By this name, which signifies the table-land of Aram, that is, Syriac, the Hebrews designated the tract of country, which they, otherwise, called the Aram-naharaim, "Aram of the two of rivers", the Greek Mesopotamia, Genesis 24:10, and "the field, (Authorized Version, 'country'), of Syria." Hosea 12:13.
The term was, perhaps, more especially applied to that portion, which bordered on the Euphrates, to distinguish if from the mountainous districts, in the north and northeast of Mesopotamia. It is, elsewhere, called Padan simply. Genesis 48:7. Abraham obtained a wife for Isaac, from Padan-aram. Genesis 25:20. Jacob's wives were also from Padan-aram, Genesis 28:2; Genesis 28:5-7; Genesis 31:1-8; Genesis 33:18.
