Mash
Mash mash [Heb. maš; Gk. Mosoch]. Named as a son of Aram (Gen. 10:23). The name is given as Meshech in 1 Ch. 1:17; cf. LXX Mosoch in both passages. Meshech, however, is a Japhetic name (Gen. 10:2 par. 1 Ch. 1:5), and Mash may be the correct Shemite name. It is possible that Mash is to be identified
