Who were the Cushites in the Bible
Kush also was the home of the rulers of the 25th dynasty. The name Kush since at
least the time of Josephus has been connected with the biblical character Cush, in the
Hebrew Bible, son of Ham (Genesis 10:6). Ham had four sons named:
Cush, Put, Canaan, and Mizraim (Hebrew name for Egypt)
The sons of Ham — Cush, Egypt, Libya, and Canaan — were the ancestors of the
peoples who bear their names. The descendants of Cush were the people of Seba,
Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The descendants of Raamah were the people
of Sheba and Dedan. Cush had a son named Nimrod, who became the world’s first
great conqueror. By the LORD’s help, he was a great hunter, and that is why people say,
“May the LORD make you as great a hunter as Nimrod!” At first, his kingdom included
Babylon, Erech, and Accad, all three of them in Babylonia. The descendants of Egypt
were the people of Lydia, Ana.
