Hebrew - Togarmah, Beth-togarmah
Hebrew - Beth-togarmah
Togarmah -

Son of Gomer, brother of Ashkenaz and Riphath (Genesis 10:8). Corresponding to Armenia. From toka, Sanskrit for "tribe" or "race," and Armah (Armenia). The Armenians represent Haik to be their founder and son of Thorgau (Moses Choren. 1:4; 9-11). The Phrygians, the race that overspread Asia Minor, probably migrated from Armenia, their language resembled the Armenian (Eudoxus, in Steph. Byz. on Armenia). The Phrygian is Indo-Germanic, as inscriptions prove, and resembled Greek (Plato, Cratyl.). In Ezekiel 27:14 Togarmah appears trading with Tyre for horses and mules; so Strabo (xi. 13, section 9) makes Armenia famous for breeding horses. In Ezekiel 38:6, Togarmah comes with Comer from the N. against Palestine; this and Genesis 10:3 imply Togarmah's connection with the Japhetic races, which modern research confirms as to Armenia. The Armenian connection with the Celts (Comer, i.e. the Cimbri, Cimmerians, Crimea, Cymry), implied in Togarmah being Gomer's son, is not unlikely. The Imperial Dictionary makes Togarmah to mean the Turkomans who have always joined the Turks, i.e. Gog (Ezekiel 38:1-6) or the king of the N. (Daniel 11:40); Bochart makes Goghasan the original form, among the Colchians, Armenians, and Chaldaeans, for which the Greeks gave Caucasus.
