Ancestor of Aramaea (from where the language Aramaic comes), to the northeast of the Holy Land, approximately where Syria is now. Josephus states that the Greeks called the Aramaeans Syrians. Its capital was Damascus (Isaiah 7:8). It also included the area between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers (Yov'loth 9:5). Laban was thus called an Aramaean (Genesis 22:20, 24:4, cf. Deuteronomy 26:5). Aram was important because of its association with Abraham's family.<ref>[ "Living Torah" by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan]</ref>
The above regurgitates a Massive Error! The above is about the Nachorite Nation of Aram son of Kemuel, not Aram son of Shem the traditional ancestor of Armenia.==References==<references />
