Names of countries mentioned in the Bible

03/18/2009 Leave a comment

Early this morning, after reading this article http://www.davidbenariel.org/lost-tribes/twelve-tribes-israel-jewish.htm I started searching for the names of the countries mentioned in the Bible which luckily I got fromWikiAnswers.com.

  1. Put = Lybia
  2. Babylon = Iraq
  3. Persia = Iran
  4. Togarmah = Germany
  5. Tarshish = Spain
  6. Rosh = Russia
  7. Achaia = Southern Greece
  8. Macedonia = Northern Greece
  9. Asia Minor = Turkey
  10. Galatia = Central Turkey
  11. Philistia (Philistines) = Gaza Strip
  12. Samaria = Golan Heights
  13. Cyprus = Cyprus
  14. Crete = Cret

Though I’ll try to verify those (and probably could add more) for the coming days.
