Cush

The Ethiopia of Bible History (see also Bible Places) was located to the south of Egypt (see The Ancient Egyptians), extending through the junction of the White and Blue Nile (see The Nile River), including, and beyond, what is today Sudan (the map below shows the modern-day boundaries of Ethiopia and Sudan). Ethiopia is the Greek word that was used for the Hebrew word Cush, with both used interchangeably through The Bible. Ethiopia was inhabited by Ham's son Cush (see Sons Of Noah) (Genesis 10:6, Jeremiah 13:23, Isaiah 18:1-2).
