Int. Standard Bible Encyclopedia
(mash): Named in Genesis 10:23 as one of the sons of Aramaic In the parallel passage in 1 Chronicles 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 (Genesis 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 Mesopotamia.
