Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֶלְקשִׁי gent. noun, Elkoshite, used of Nahum the prophet, Nahum 1:1. [“LXX. and Vulg. without o, Ἐλκεσαῖος, Elcesaius.”] Jerome (on the passage) mentions Elkosh as a village of Galilee, called Helkesei (or Elcesi), “sibique a circumducente monstratum.” Pseudepiphanius contends that Elcesi was a village of Judea, see Relandi Palæst. p. 627. However this may be, it would seem to have been a town of Palestine, not Assyria, although even now the Orientals make القوش [el-kûsh] near Mosul, the native place of the prophet. [“Both are very doubtful,” see Thes.]
