3. District mentioned in Jeremiah 25:23 ; Jeremiah 49:8 ; Ezekiel 25:13 . It is more than once in these prophecies associated with Edom, so that it was probably connected with the descendants of Abraham.

4. In Ezekiel 27:15,20 ; Ezekiel 38:13 apparently another place of the same name is referred to, which probably alludes to the district where the descendants of Cush settled.
