Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גּוֹזָן (from the root גָּזָה, as גּוֹלָן from גָּלָה, perhaps “stone quarry”), Gozan, Gauzanitis, a region of Mesopotamia subject to the Assyrians (2 Kings 19:12; Isaiah 37:12), situated on the river Habor (2 Kings 17:6, 18:11 1 Chronicles 5:26), whither a part of the ten tribes were carried away by Shalmanezar; Greek Γαυζανῖτις, now called Kaushan, 2 Kings 17:6 compare Ptol. v. 18; 1 Ch. loc. cit. indeed in the words וַיְבִיאֵם לַחְלַח וְחָבוֹר וְהָרָא וּנְהַר גּוֹזָן Habor is separated from the river of Gozan, by the word וְהָרָא, so that it might seem to be different; but I have no doubt that this is to be attributed to the negligence of the writer. [If this means the writer of the book, it is not to be borne, for no inspired writer can be safely thus charged; transcribers may err.]
