Cushan: Probably a poetic or prolonged name of the land of Cush, the Arabian
(Habakkuk 3:7) Some have, however, supposed this to be the same as
(Judges 3:8,10) i.e., taking the latter part of the
name as a title or local appellation, Chushan "of the two iniquities"
oppressing Israel, and provoking them to idolatry), a Mesopotamian
king, identified by Rawlinson with Asshur-ris-ilim (the father of
Tiglathpileser I.); but incorrectly, for the empire of Assyria was
not yet founded. He held Israel in bondage for eight years.
