Easton's Bible Dictionary - Togarmah

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Togarmah
TOGARMAH . The third son of Gomer, his brothers being Ashkenaz and Riphath ( Genesis 10:3 ). In Ezekiel mention is made of ‘the house of Togarmah,’ the members of which traded for the wares of Tyre with horses and mules. Fried. Delitzsch suggests that Togarmah is the Til-garimmu of the Assyrian inscriptions, described by Sargon of Assyria as the capital of Melitene, which he captured and re-colonized. Sennacherib, who again captured Til-garimmu and destroyed it, speaks of it as being on the borders of Tabal (Tubal [see Meshech]). The difference in the first element ( tô = til ) makes a slight difficulty. Kiepert and Dillmann regard Togarmah as being S.W. Armenia.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Togarmah
Son of Gomer and name of a region of Asia Minor (Genesis 10:3 ; 1 Chronicles 1:6 ; compare Beth-togarmah, Ezekiel 38:6 ) inhabited by his descendants. Togarmah was famed for its horses (Ezekiel 27:14 ). This site is likely modern Gurun 70 miles west of Malatya or an area in Armenia.



Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Togarmah
Son of Gomer, brother of Ashkenaz and Riphath (Genesis 10:8). Corresponding to Armenia. From toka , Sanskrit for "tribe" or "race," and Αrmah (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.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Beth-Togarmah
(behth-toh gahr' mah) Place name meaning, “house of Togarmah.” Listed in table of nations (Genesis 10:3 ) as son of Gomer and great grandson of Noah, Togarmah is a city mentioned in Assyrian and Hittite texts. It was north of Carchemish on an Assyrian trade route. It may be related to modern Gurun between the Halys and Euphrates Rivers. Ezekiel notes Togarmah's trading relations in horses and mules with Tyre (Ezekiel 27:14 ) and warned it of judgment along with Gog (Ezekiel 38:6 ).

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Togarmah
Son of Gomer, a son of Japheth, whose descendants probably settled in Armenia. Genesis 10:3 ; 1 Chronicles 1:6 ; Ezekiel 27:14 ; Ezekiel 38:6 .

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Togarmah
the third son of Gomer, Genesis 10:4 . The learned are divided as to what country he peopled. Josephus and St. Jerom were of opinion, that Togarmah was the father of the Phrygians: Eusebius, Theodoret, and Isidorus of Seville, that he peopled Armenia: the Chaldee and the Talmudists are for Germany. Several moderns believe that the children of Togarmah peopled Turcomania in Tartary and Scythia. Bochart is for Cappadocia: he builds upon what is said in Ezekiel 27:14 , "They of the house of Togarmah traded in thy fairs," that is, at Tyre, "with horses and horsemen and mules." He proves that Cappadocia was famous for its excellent horses and its asses. He observes also, that certain Gauls, under the conduct of Trocmus, made a settlement at Cappadocia, and were called Trocmi, or Throgmi. The opinion, says Calmet, which places Togarmah in Scythia and Turcomania, seems to stand upon the best foundation.

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Togarmah
A descendant of Japheth, Genesis 10:3 , supposed to have given his name to the region of Asia afterwards called Armenia, Ezekiel 38:15,16 . It was celebrated for its horses and mules; and the men of Togarmah, like the modern Armenians, were an industrious, peaceable, and trafficking people, Ezekiel 27:14 .
