Bible Names N-Z: Raamah


Raama in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ra'-a-ma (ra`ma'): Thus spelled only in 1 Ch 1:9; elsewhere "Raamah" (ra`mah). A son of Cush and father of Sheba and Dedan (Gen 10:7 = 1 Ch 1:9). In Ezekiel's lament over Tyre (Ezek 27:22) the tribe of Raamah is mentioned along with Sheba as a mercantile people who provided the inhabitants of Tyre with spices, precious stones and gold. It has generally been identified with Regina, mentioned by Ptolemy and Steph. Byzantr. as a city in Southeastern Arabia on the shores of the Persian Gulf. The Septuagint (Rhegma) itself supposes this site. But the Arabic name of the city here indicated is spelled with a "g" and so gives rise to a phonological difficulty. A more probable identification has been found in the Sabean ra`mah in Southwestern Arabia near Me`in in the north of Marib. Me`in was the capital of the old Minaean kingdom. A. S. Fulton

Raamah in Fausset's Bible Dictionary A Cushite race. Called son of Cush (Genesis 10:7; Septuagint translated Rhegma the same as that in Ptolemy 6:7, S. of the Persian gulf). Sheba and Dedan are Raamah's sons (Ezekiel 27:22). His locality must therefore be southern Arabia. Renowned as traders with Tyre and other peoples (Ezekiel 27:22).

Raamah in Wikipedia Raamah or Rama is a name found in the Bible (Hebrew: רעמה, Ra‛mâh), means "lofty, exalted, that also may mean "thunder". The name is first mentioned as the fourth son of Cush, who is the son of Ham, who is the son of Noah in Gen. 10:7, and later appears as a country that traded with the Phoenician city-state of Tyre, in Ezek. 27:22. It has been connected with Rhammanitae mentioned by Strabo in the southwest Arabian peninsula, and with an Arabian city of Regmah at the head of Persian Gulf. He is the brother of Nimrod, who founded several cities in Mesopotamia, including Babylon and Nineveh. We know from the inscriptions of ancient Sheba that Raamah's descendants settled near to the land of Havilah to the east of Ophir. This country of Raamah is usually assumed to be somewhere in the region of Yemen; Sheba was a son of Raamah, and his descendants are often held to be included among the Sabeans. The Yemenites are dark-skinned as are the descendants of their progenitor's eponymous grandfather, Kush or Cush, commonly translated in the Bible as Ethiopia, meaning dark. Dedan, son of Raamah. Apparently a region of the Tabuk Province of Saudi Arabia. However, there was also an Israelite city called Ramah, somewhat closer to Tyre.
