Armenia


"High land, occurs only in Authorized Version, 2 Kings 19:37; in" "Revised Version, "Ararat," which is the Hebrew word. A country" in western Asia lying between the Caspian and the Black Sea. Here the ark of Noah rested after the Deluge (Gen. 8:4). It is "for the most part high table-land, and is watered by the Aras," "the Kur, the Euphrates, and the Tigris. Ararat was properly the" name of a part of ancient Armenia. Three provinces of Armenia "are mentioned in Jer. 51:27, Ararat, Minni, and Ashchenaz. Some," "however, think Minni a contraction for Armenia. (See" [30]ARARAT.)
