(cyoo' sshan) A tent-dwelling people Habakkuk saw as experiencing God's wrath (Habakkuk 3:7 ). The parallel with Midian makes people think of an Arabian tribe, possibly nomads. Some identify Cushan with Cush, either as a territory controlled by Cush or as an otherwise unknown kingdom of Cush on the northeast shore of the Gulf of Aqabah near Midian. This would account for Cushites near Arabs (2 Chronicles 21:16 ).
