Mash in Easton's Bible Dictionary
(= Meshech 1 Chr. 1:17), one of the four sons of Aram, and the
name of a tribe descended from him (Gen. 10:23)
part probably of Mesopotamia. Some have supposed that
the inhabitants of Mount Masius, the present Karja
which forms part of the chain of Taurus.
Mash in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
Son of Aram, Shem's son (Genesis 10:28). Josephus (Ant. 1:6)
says, "Mash founded the Mesanaeans," i.e. the inhabitants of
Mesene near Bassera where the Tigris and Euphrates fall into
the Persian gulf; this however seems too far from the other
Aramaic settlements. Gesenius identifies the descendants of
Mash with the inhabitants of Mount Masius, a range N. of
Mesopotamia, above Nisibis. Knobel reconciles this with
Josephus by supposing a migration from northern to southern
Babylonia, which however is the reverse of the direction which
the population usually took, namely from S. to N. In 1
Chronicles 1:17 the reading is Meshech, which the Septuagint
reads perhaps correctly; also in Genesis 10:23. Meshech
occurred in Genesis 10:2, among the sons of Japheth; but here
(Genesis 10:23) among Shem's descendants. Cappadocia was the
original home of the Moschi (Meshech); its population was a
mixed one, and a portion connected with Aram (Syria). Thus the
name occurring in Japheth's line and also in Shem's line
points to the mixture of Aramaic Moschi with Japhetic Moschi
in Cappadocia (G. Rawlinson).

Mash in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
(mash): Named in Gen 10:23 as one of the sons of Aramaic In
the parallel passage in 1 Ch 1:17 the name is given as
"Meshech" (meshekh), and the Septuagint (Mosoch) supports this
form in both passages. "Meshech," however, is a Japhetic name
(Gen 10:2), and "Mash" would seem to be the original reading.
It is probably to be identified with the Mons Masius of
classical writers (Strabo, etc.), on the northern boundary of
