The Book of Genesis.

  • The sons of Japheth [יֶ֔פֶת – Ed.]Gomer [גֹּ֣מֶר -Ed.], and Magog [מָג֔וֹג – Ed.], and Madai [מָדַ֖י – Ed.], and Javan [יָוָ֣ן – Ed.], and Tubal [תֻבָ֑ל – Ed.], and Meshech [מֶ֖שֶׁךְ – Ed.] , and Tiras [תִירָֽס in Hebrew, or Turk. Several medieval historians and scholars of Turkic origin, such as Mahmud al KashgariAbu’l Ghazi Bahader,Khan of Kwowarazm asserted that the youngest son of prophet Japheth was Turk, known in Bible as Tiras. The name Tiras is another variation of the Turkic word Tur that was very frequently mentioned by Herodotus in the name of the peoples, rivers, mountains, territories, such as the city Tyre, the river Tyres, the mountain Taurus, the name of the tribes – Tyragetes, Tyrites, Tyrian, CaspatyrusTauriansTeucriansTyrinthians; names of people – Agathyrsi, Idanthyrsus,Tyrrhenus (a branch of the Pelasgians), Tyres,Tyreus; name of the country Tyrrhenia, Thyrea,Teucria. The word Turk ↔ Türk , which is a collective denominator of all Turkic nations – both ancient and currently existing, stems from the ancient word Tur ‘powerful, strong’. The word Turk is the plural word of the word Tur, such as Tur/Tür→Turuq/Türük  , meaning ‘we are Turs,or Turks; we are powerful”In support of these statements stands G.Rawlinson who brought forward the fact of existence on the old Egyptian monuments Mashuash and Tuirash, and upon the Assyrian Tubal and Misek, put in the same order as in Genesis. – Ed.]
  • And the sons of Gomer [גֹּ֑מֶר – Ed.] Ashkenaz [אַשְׁכֲּנַ֥ז – Ed.], and Riphath [רִיפַ֖ת – Ed.], and Togarmah [תֹגַרְמָֽה in Hebrew. A Turkic nation Togarmah is likely received its name from this biblical ancestor.The Turkic background of the biblical Togarmah is indirectly supported by the letter of Khazarian King Joseph written in the X c. to Hasdai ibn Shaprut, a secretary to Caliph of Cordoba in response to his inquiry about Khazarian heritage.”The letter of Joseph the king,son of Aaron the king, the Turk – may his creator preserve him to the head of the AssemblyHasdai, the son of Isaac, son of Ezra… You ask us also in your epistle: “Of what people, of what family, and of what tribe are you?” Know that we are descended from Japheth, through his son Togarmah. I have found in the genealogical books of my ancestors that Togarmah had ten sons. These are their names: the eldest was Ujur, the second Tauris, the third Avar, the fourth Uauz, the fifth Bizal, the sixth Tarna, the seventh Khazar, the eighth Janur, the ninth Bulgar, the tenth Sawir. I am a descendant of Khazar, the seventh son.” Kol Mebasser, “Voice of the Messenger of Good News”.- Ed.]
  • The children of Shem [שֵׁ֖ם -Ed.]Elan [עֵילָ֣ם – Ed.], and Asshur [אַשּׁ֑וּר – Ed.], and Arphaxad [אַרְפַּכְשַׁ֖ד – Ed.], and Lud [ל֥וּד – Ed.], and Aram [אֲרָֽם  in Hebrew. It is highly likely that a Turkic name Aramut, recorded in Diwanu Lugat at-Turk by Mahmud al Kashgari as a name of the Turkic tribe and the name of the Turkic territory, has its origin from this biblical name Aram. The Turkic name Aramut is a combination of the name Aram and Ut ‘win’, meaning  ‘Aram victorius’. To honor this biblical ancestor, Uyghurs gave his name to the first month of their calendar – Aram ayi ‘month of Aram’.- Ed.]
  • And the children of Aram Uz [ע֥וּץ in Hebrew, or a slight variation of Az – this name must be without any doubts the name of the Turkic tribe Az, mentioned by Herodotus as an Asian tribe that was used to name the whole continent of Asia. This ancient Turkic tribe still exists  in the name of nations – Azerbaijani, Kirghiz ↔ Kırqız → Kirq/Qırx + Az, who are, in fact, the descendants of this ancient nation of Az, as well as  numerous Turkic toponyms, hydronyms, lands and countries – Azerbaijan, Kirqizistan;  town Azov in Russia, situated on the Don river within close proximity of the Sea of Azov: Azov→ Az Ov↔Ev ‘a home’, translated as ‘ the home of Azes‘; cities in Azerbaijan RepublicAzgyr → Az + Gyr/Qır ‘ destroy’,meaning ‘ Azes who destroy’; Aza; Yukhary Aza; Azaru → Az + Er/Ər ‘a man’, meaning ‘an Az man’, i.e  an Azeri; Azix ‘ we are Azes’,  Astara → As + Tara ‘ disperse’, meaning ‘ Azes disperse’; previously Turkic territories currently under Russian rule,such as city  Astrakhan → As/Az + Tarkhan ‘a title of the khan’, ‘ a ruler’; Nizhniye Azy – in Siberia. – Ed.], and Hul [ח֖וּל – Ed.], and Gether [גֶ֥תֶר – Ed.], and Mash [וָמַֽשׁ – Ed.].
  • And rested the ark in the month seventh on the seventh and tenth day of the month on the mountains of Ararat. [In his Essay on the Alarodians of Herodotus, Sir Henry Creswicke Rawlinson indicated that ” The name of Ararat is constantly used in Scripture, but always to denote the country rather than a particular mountain.The famous passage of Genesis, which has given a world-wide celebrity to the name of Ararat, refers to a mountain range, and was understood by all the best early authorities on Eastern geography to indicate the lofty chain which overhung the plain of Assyria to the northward of Nineveh,- this chain, known to the Greeks as the Gordyaen mountains [Kurdish – Ed.], to the Syrians as Mount Kurdu, and to the Arabs as Jabal Judi… The inhabitants of Armenia whose Semitic name was Urarda or Ararat…It seems highly probable that there was in reality a marked ethnic distinction between the Armenians and the Urardians,or Alarodians….At any rate the Urardian, whether purely Scythic like the Accadian, or partially Arianized by contact with northern races, possesses, as it would seem, no affinity whatever with the modern Armenian. The race speaking that tongue would really seem to have emigrated from Phrygia, and gradually to have brought the mountainous country to the eastward under their sway, driving out or absorbing the old Urardians, and substituting in their place their own name, language, religion, and traditions…Most of the ancient names of the countries were adopted from their respective Pantheons, and as the Greeks recognized Armenus as on of the Argonauts, I would refer as a possible derivation to the god Armennu, who is said in one of the cuneiform mythological lists to have been worshipped at Susa.” – Ed.]
