Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַרְפַּכְשַׁד Genesis 10:22, 24 Genesis 10:24 -11:1013 [Arphaxad], pr.n. of the third son of Shem, designating at the same time a people or region; nor is the conjecture of Bochart improbable (Phaleg. ii. 4) that this is Ἀῤῥαπαχῖτις, Arrapachitis, a region of Assyria, near to Armenia (Prolem. vi. 1), the native land of the Chaldeans (see my remarks on Isaiah 23:13). This is favoured by the etymology (from אַרְף, أُرْفَةُ boundary, and כשׁר or כשׂד i.q. כשדים [see note]), and by Josephus (Antiq. i. 6, § 4 ); Ἀρφαξάδης δὲ τοὺς νῦν Χαλδαίους καλουμένους Ἀρφαξαδαίους ὠνόμασεν. [Note. “Bohlen on Gen. loc. cit. compares Sanscr. Arjapaksharâ ‘(a land) by the side of Asia;’ comp. Porussia, i.q. Po-rus, near the Russians.”]
