Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.
Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall carry thee away captive.
And ships shall come
from the coast of Chittim, and shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall perish for ever.
1 Chronicles 1:17
The sons of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram, and Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Meshech.
Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur, and
there and all her company: his graves are
about him: all of them slain, fallen by the sword:
Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are
our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.
