Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 I. כּוּשׁ proper name, masculine person, of a people and

territory (Egyptian Kœš, Steind BAS i, 593, Assyrian Kûsu, Id ib. Dl Pa 251; Kaši in Tel Amarna tablets, see Wkl Tel Amos 39*); —

1 1st 'son' of חָם Genesis 10:6,7 (P) = 1 Chronicles 1:8,9, ᵐ5 Ξους, ᵑ9 Chus, from whom descended according to these verses the southernmost peoples known to Hebrews.

2 land and people of southern Nile-valley, or Upper Egypt, extending from Syene ( Ezekiel 29:10) indefinitely to the south, ᵐ5 Αιθιοπια, Αιθιοπες:

a. the land Isaiah 11:11; Isaiah 18:1; Zephaniah 3:10; Ezekiel 29:10; Job 28:19; Esther 1:1; Esther 8:9.

b. the people Isaiah 20:4; Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 38:5; personified Psalm 68:32.

3 in Genesis 10:8 (J) = 1 Chronicles 1:10 כּוּשׁ is error for כַּשׁ = Babylonian Kaššu, according to Schr COT on Genesis 10:6, Dl Pa 51ff. 72f. and most Assyriologists; so perhaps also Genesis 2:13 (J), yet see HptÜber Ld. u. Meer, 1894-5, No. 15.

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כּוּשׁ pr.n.

(1) [Cush] Ethiopia (f. Psalms 68:32), and Ethiopians (LXX. Αἰθιοπία, Αἰθίοπες, comp. Jos. Archæol. i. 6, § 2, and Pesh. Acts 8:27); a people descended from Ham, Genesis 10:7, Genesis 10:8 whose country was surrounded by the river Gihon (Genesis 2:13 comp. Isaiah 18:1; Zephaniah 3:10); inhabited by black men (Jeremiah 13:23); and very rich (Isaiah 43:3, 45:14 ); very often joined with Egypt (-Isa. 20:35 ; 37:9 see my comment on this passage); see also 2 Kings 19:9; 2 Chronicles 14:11, sq.; Psalms 68:32, 87:4 Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 30:4, sq.; Daniel 11:43; Amos 9:7; Job 28:19. Bochart has incautiously (Phaleg iv. 2) made the Cushites inhabitants of Arabia Felix; and the opinion of J. D. Michaëlis, who places the Cushites partly in Arabia, partly in Ethiopia, is not to be regarded (Spicileg. i. p. 143, sq.); for there is no place in the Old Test., as Schulthess has rightly remarked (Paradies, p. 10, sq.), which makes it needful to regard כּוּשִׁים as having inhabited any where but in Africa (the passages Numbers 12:1; Habakkuk 3:10; 2 Chronicles 21:16, 14:8, prove nothing); [but even if these passages proved nothing, Genesis 2:13 would still mark an Asiatic Cush. See Forster’s Arabia]. Indeed all the nations sprung from כּוּשׁ and enumerated in Genesis 10:7, are to be sought for in Africa.

(2) a Benjamite in the court of Saul, [if not a name applied to Saul himself, or to Shimei], Psalms 7:1.
