Bible Names H-M: Meshech


Meshech in Easton's Bible Dictionary drawing out, the sixth son of Japheth (Gen. 10:2), the founder of a tribe (1 Chr. 1:5; Ezek. 27:13; 38:2,3). They were in all probability the Moschi, a people inhabiting the Moschian Mountains, between the Black and the Caspian Seas. In Ps. 120:5 the name occurs as simply a synonym for foreigners or barbarians. "During the ascendency of the Babylonians and Persians in Western Asia, the Moschi were subdued; but it seems probable that a large number of them crossed the Caucasus range and spread over the northern steppes, mingling with the Scythians. There they became known as Muscovs, and gave that name to the Russian nation and its ancient capital by which they are still generally known throughout the East"

Meshech in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Japheth's sixth son. The Moschi, a warlike race in the mountainous region between Armenia, Iberia, and Colchis. Associated with Tubal, the Tibareni of Pontus. Psalm 120:5, I dwell among people lawless and fierce as "Mesech" at one extremity of the world and "Kedar" at the other. Gog's chief vassal, ideal representative of the pagan barbarian world. Ezekiel 27:13," they traded the persons of men" as slaves, and "vessels of copper," Ezekiel 32:26; Ezekiel 39:1. Moscow and Tobolsk may derive their names from Mesech and Tubal. Magog was Gog's original kingdom; he acquired also Mesech and Tubal, becoming their "chief prince" ("rest"; the Scythian Tauri and the Araxes were called Rhos, from whence Russia). Mesech was once one of the most powerful nations of western Asia. The Assyrians were frequently warring with them, from 1100 to 700 B.C.; then living E. of Taurus range and in Cappadocia. The inscriptions call them Muskai, the Tibareni Tuplai (Tubal). Caesarea Mazacha was the great Moschian capital.

Meshech in Naves Topical Bible -1. Also called MESECH Son of Japheth Ge 10:2; 1Ch 1:5 -2. Son of Shem 1Ch 1:17 -3. A tribe Ps 120:5 -4. The Moschi Eze 27:13; 32:26; 38:2,3

Meshech in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE me'-shek, me'-sek (meshekh, "long," "tall"; Mosoch): Son of Japheth (Gen 10:2; 1 Ch 1:5; 1:17 is a scribal error for "Mash"; compare Gen 10:22,23). His descendants and their dwelling-place (probably somewhere in the neighborhood of armenia (Herodotus iii.94)) seem to be regarded in Scripture as synonyms for the barbaric and remote (Ps 120:5; compare Isa 66:19, where Meshech should be read instead of "that draw the bow"). It is thought that the "Tibareni and Moschi" of the classical writers refer to the same people. Doubtless they appear in the annals of Assyria as enemies of that country under the names Tabali and Mushki--the latter the descendants of Meshech and the former those of Tubal to whom the term "Tibareni" may refer in the clause above. This juxtaposition of names is in harmony with practically every appearance of the word in Scripture. It is seldom named without some one of the others--Tubal, Javan, Gog and Magog. It is this which forms a good justification for making the suggested change in Isa 66:19, where Meshech would be in the usual company of Tubal and Javan. Ezekiel mentions them several times, first, as engaged in contributing to the trade of Tyre (Tiras of Gen 10:2?), in "vessels of brass" and--very significantly--slaves; again there is the association of Javan and Tubal with them (Ezek 27:13); second, they are included in his weird picture of the under- world: "them that go down into the pit" (Ezek 32:18,26). They are mentioned again with Gog and Magog twice as those against whom the prophet is to "set his face" (Ezek 38:2,3; 39:1). Henry Wallace
