Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
אֲרָם ʼĂrâm, arawm'; from the same as H759; the highland; Aram or Syria, and its inhabitants; also the name of the son of Shem, a grandson of Nahor, and of an Israelite:—Aram, Mesopotamia, Syria, Syrians.
אֲרָם 149 proper name, masculine Aram (Assyrian Aramu, etc., see DlPa 257; Thes and others propose √ ארם = רום but compare Nö as below) —
1. 5th son of Shem Genesis 10:22, 23; 1 Chronicles 1:17.
2. grandson of Nahor Genesis 22:21.
4. a descendant of Asher 1 Chronicles 7:34. — Elsewhere only of Aramæan people & land (= 1 above), feminine 2 Samuel 8:5 masculine 2 Samuel 10:14.
a. people, singular collective = the Aramæans, a leading branch of the Shemitic stock inhabiting Mesopotamia & northern Syria, in many tribes & settlements; 2 Samuel 8:5 (twice in verse); 2 Samuel 8:6 + 1 Kings 20:20, 21 + 1 Chronicles 19:10, 12 + (64 times Samuel Kings Chronicles) Amos 9:7; Isaiah 7:2, 4, 5, 8; Isaiah 9:11; Isaiah 17:3; Jeremiah 35:11; so Ezekiel 16:57; Ezekiel 27:16, but Co in both אדום עַם אֲרָם Amos 1:5; of particular divisions of Aram, בית רְחוֺב א׳ 2 Samuel 10:6, צוֺבָא א׳ 2 Samuel 10:6, 8; [H760 Psalm 60:2 [Psalm 60:1] (title)], דַּמֶּשֶׂק א׳ 2 Samuel 8:5 compare 1 Chronicles 18:5,
[H763 even נַהֲרַיִם א׳ Psalm 60:2 [Psalm 60:1] (title)];
(note that Assyrian never gives name Aramu to people west of Euphrates, but Chatti instead, with other particular names, COT Genesis 10:22, also Dll.c.); on 2 Samuel 8:12, 13; 1 Chronicles 18:11 see אֱדוֺם.
b. less often clearly of land, Aram Numbers 23:7; 2 Samuel 15:8; 2 Chronicles 20:2 (read however here אדום Thes Add and others), שְׂדֵה א׳ Hosea 12:13;
[H763 also of particular divisions of the territory נַהֲרַיִם א׳ 'Mesopotamia,' i.e. probably land between Euphrates & Chaboras, so Di after Kiep, Genesis 24:10; Deuteronomy 23:5 [Deuternonomy 23:4]; Judges 3:8 (compare Psalm 60:2 [Psalm 60:1] above]);
compare א׳ פַּדַּן Paddan-Aram Genesis 25:20; Genesis 31:18; Genesis 33:18; Genesis 35:9, 26; Genesis 46:15, א׳ פַּדֶּ֫נָה Genesis 28:2, 5, 6, 7 see פדן; דַּמֶּשֶׂק א׳ 2 Samuel 8:6 compare 1 Chronicles 18:6.
c. often indeterminate, especially in מֶלֶךְ א׳ etc., perhaps primarily land but often including people: so Judges 2:11; Judges 10:6 (אֱלֹהֵי א׳) 1 Kings 10:29 2 Chronicles 1:17 + (41 times Kings & Chronicles) Isaiah 7:1. — (compare especially NöSehenkel BL, ZMG 1871, 113; Hermes see 3, 443 f. DlPa 257.)
