Bible Names A-G: Ashkenaz


Ashkenaz in Easton's Bible Dictionary one of the three sons of Gomer (Gen. 10:3), and founder of one of the tribes of the Japhetic race. They are mentioned in connection with Minni and Ararat, and hence their original seat must have been in Armenia (Jer. 51:27), probably near the Black Sea, which, from their founder, was first called Axenus, and afterwards the Euxine.

Ashkenaz in Fausset's Bible Dictionary One of the three sons of Gomer, Japhet's son, i.e. of the Gomerian branch of the Japhetic division of the human race. Mentioned by Jeremiah (Jeremiah 51:27) in connection with Ararat and Minni, so that their locality then must have been the Armenan highland. (See ARARAT.) Their accompanying Cyrus to the siege of Babylon (588 B.C.) is there foretold. Probably a Cymric tribe. The name perhaps appears in Ascanias, a river in Asia Minor, and in Scandinavia. Knobel derives the German race from Ashkenaz, the name still given by the robbins to Germany. He derives the name from As (the original of As-ia) and genos, gens, "a race," our "kin." Hasse suggests a connection with Axenus, Euxine Sea.

Ashkenaz in Naves Topical Bible Also called ASHCHENAZ -Son of Gomer Ge 10:3; 1Ch 1:6 -Descendants of Jer 51:27
http://www.bible-history.com/naves/A/ASHKENAZ/


Ashkenaz in Smiths Bible Dictionary (spreading fire), one of the three sons of Gomer, son of Japhet. Ge 10:3 We may probably recognize the tribe of Ashkenaz on the northern shore of Asia Minor in the name of Lake Ascanius, and in Europe in the name Scandia, Scandinavia. Knobel considers that Ashkenaz is to be identified with the German race.

Ashkenaz in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ash'-ke-naz ('ashkenaz): The name occurs in Gen 10:3; 1 Ch 16, in the list of the sons of Japheth as a son of Gomer. See TABLE OF NATIONS. It occurs also in Jer 51:27 (the King James Version "Ashchenaz") in connection with the kingdoms of Ararat and Minni, which suggests a location about Armenia.

Ashkenaz in Wikipedia In the Bible, Ashkenaz is Gomer's first son, brother of Riphath and Togarmah (Gen. 10:3, 1 Chronicles 1:6), thereby a Japhetic descendant of Noah. A kingdom of Ashkenaz is called together with Ararat and Minni against Babylon (Jer. 51:27). There is a theory that biblical Askhenaz (אשכנז) arose from Ashkūz (אשכוז) (= the Scythians) by an old misread of נ (nun) for ו (vav). Ashkenaz is also regarded as the father of the Scythians, Sarmatians, and other Indo-Aryans, due largely to the use of the name "Ashkuz" (Saka) for the Scythians in Assyrian Akkadian inscriptions. It may also refer to the Phrygians, who according to Homer's Iliad settled around Lake Ascania. In rabbinic literature Ashkenaz is believed to be the ancestor of the Germanic, Scandinavian and Slavic peoples, probably due to the similarity of the names Gomer and German, and the similarity of Ashkenaz to the name of Ask, the first human male in Norse mythology, or Aschanes (Askanius), mythological progenitor of the Saxons (see also: Oisc of Kent). For this reason, Ashkenaz is the Medieval Hebrew name for Germany. Ashkenazi Jews, also known as Ashkenazic Jews or Ashkenazim (Standard Hebrew: sing. אַשְׁכֲּנָזִי, pronounced [ˌaʃkəˈnazi], pl. אַשְׁכֲּנָזִים [ˌaʃkəˈnazim] (this 'z' is pronounced as in English "zip", not German-fashion as "ts"); also יְהוּדֵי אַשְׁכֲּנָז Yehudei Ashkenaz, "the Jews of Ashkenaz"), are descended from the medieval Jewish communities of the Rhineland.
