COUNTRY [ISBE]

COUNTRY - kun'-tri ('erets, "land," sadheh, "field"; agros, "field," chora, "region"): The foregoing are the principal words rendered "country" in English Versions of the Bible, though we find also 'adhamah, "earth" (Jon 4:2); 'i, "island" (Jer 47:4 the King James Version); gelilah, "circuit" (Ezek 47:8 the King James Version); chebhel, "rope" (Dt 3:14); maqom, "place" (Gen 29:26 the King James Version); nepheth,"hill" or "height" (Josh 17:11 the King James Version); genos, "race" (Acts 4:36 the King James Version); ge, "earth" (Mt 9:31 the King James Version; Acts 7:3 the King James Version); patris, "native land" (Lk 4:23; Jn 4:44; Heb 11:14); perichoros, "country (the American Standard Revised Version "region") round about" (Mt 14:35; Lk 3:3; 4:37; 8:37). In Heb 11:14 ff, "heaven" is referred to as a country. Egypt and Assyria were "far countries" (Jer 8:19 the King James Version; Zec 10:9). The hill country (compare the numerous Gibeahs (gibh`ah, "a hill")) was the mountainous region to the North or to the South of Jerusalem. The low country, shephelah (see SHEPHELAH), consisted of the foothills to the west of the hill country. The south country or NEGEB (neghebh), which see, was the dry, extreme southern part of Palestine,approximately between Beersheba and Kadesh-barnea.
