(payd' duhn-ay' ram) Place name perhaps meaning, “way of Syria,” “field of Syria,” or “plow of Syria.” The land from where Abraham journeyed to Canaan. One of the principle cities was Haran. Later, Abraham sent his steward to Paddan-Aram to seek a wife for Isaac (Genesis 24:1-9 ), and Jacob fled there and married into Laban and Rebekah's branch of the patriarchal family (Genesis 28:2-5 ). It may be modern tell Feddan near Carrhae. Hosea 12:13 calls it the field or country of Syria.
