Children of Eden
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
The people “in Telassar,” destroyed with those of Gozan, Haran, and Rezeph (2 Kings 19:12; Isaiah 37:12). The location Telassar where the children of Eden were from, was most likely a hill where a temple had been built to Asshur. The Bit Adini of inscriptions found there can possibly be identified with the “children of Eden.” If so, this points to a district on the middle Euphrates. The “Eden” of Ezek 27:23 probably refers to this same region (Ezek 27:23). Beth-Eden is probably not related to the location of the people of Eden.
