Aram-Naharaim
ARAM-NAHARAIM

(ay' ram-nay huh ray' im) Country name meaning, “Aram of the two rivers.” Appears in title of Psalms 60:1 in KJV. Transliterated from Hebrew also in Genesis 24:10; Deuteronomy 23:4; Judges 3:8; and 1 Chronicles 19:6 by NIV. It refers to the land between the Tigris and Euphrates River. Nahor, Abraham's brother, lived there; and Rebekah, Isaac's wife, came from there. Balaam, the prophet Balak hired to curse Israel as they entered Moab from the wilderness, came from Aram-Naharaim. So did Cushan-Rishathaim, who oppressed Israel before Othniel delivered them. The Ammonites bought military help from Aram-Naharaim to fight David.
