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,
