Rasses

ras´ēz ( Ῥαασσείς , Rhaasseı́s , Codex Alexandrinus and Codex Vaticanus, Ῥασσείς , Rhasseı́s ; Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) Tharsis ; Old Latin Thiras et Rasis ): The children of Rasses are mentioned with Put, Lud and the children of Ishmael as having been subdued by Holofernes ( Judith 2:23 ).

Their identity is a matter of conjecture only. Some think Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) Tharsis (= Tarsus) is meant, others Rosh ( Ezekiel 38:2 , Ezekiel 38:3; Ezekiel 39:1 ), others Rhosos, a mountain range and city South from Anunus, on the Gulf of Issus. Most probably a district, not a town, is named, situated in the eastern part of Asia Minor.
