It is written:
Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you. (Ezekiel 38:6)
What exactly is the house of Togarmah?
Cooper has noted:
“Togarmah’s earliest descendants settled in Armenia. Fourteenth century BC Hittite documents tell us of Tegarama, a region where they settled which lay between Carchemish and Haran and which was overrun by the “enemy from Isuwa”, that is a people from beyond the Euphrates. Sargon II and Sennacherib of Assyria both mention their later city of Tilgari-manu. This lay some thirty miles east of present-day Gurun in Turkey, and was destroyed in 695 BC. Josephus knew the descendants of Togarmah as Thrugramma. … and so on. Thus it comes about that, throughout the entire Table of Nations, whether we talk about the descendants of Shem, Ham or Japheth, every one of their names is found in the records of the early surrounding nations of the Middle East, even the many obscure names of certain remote Arab tribes that are otherwise not evident in any modern history book of the times, and enough is available for a detailed history to be written about them. It is a phenomenon of immense implications.” (Bill Cooper, After the Flood: The Early Post-Flood History Of Europe Traced Back To Noah, 36 (Kindle Edition))
Ken Johnson shows incredible historical evidence that the house of Togarmah included many nations, including China:
“In the chapter on Armenia we learned Togarmah had eight sons. His firstborn founded the Armenian race. This information was preserved in the History of Armenia, by Moses Chorene, and the Georgian Chronicles written by Leonti Mroveli in the 11th century AD. The sons of Togarmah became the progenitors of several of the Caucasian peoples. Togarmah is said to have settled among his children in Armenia and Georgia. It is also said he lived for almost 600 years. After the fall of the tower of Babel, when Nimrod lost most of his power in the outer regions, Togarmah partitioned his land among his eight sons. Hayk took what is now Armenia and part of Turkey. Kartlos and his sons settled the regions which today are collectively called the provinces of Georgia . His other sons took the land between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea up to the Caucasus Mountains. Two of Togarmah’s sons, Kovkas and Kekan (founder of the Leks), settled north of the Caucasus Mountains. The Georgian Chronicles tell us the second born son of Togarmah, Kartlos, founded the Georgian race. Kartlos had five sons: Mc ’ xet ’a, Gardbos, Kaxos, Kuxos, and Gajis. Mcxeta had three sons: Op’los, Ojrxos, and Jawaxos. These seven sons and grandsons of Kartlos became the founders and first kings of the Mtskheta, Gardabani, Kakheti, Kukheti, Gachiani, Uplistsikhe, Odzrkhe, and Javakheti peoples, respectively. Kartlos united his people and founded the city of Kartli. Today Kartli is the name of the largest province of Eastern Georgia. The Georgian capital, Tbilisi, and the cities Gori and Rustavi are located there. Azerbaijan and Armenia are directly south of it….Part of the house of Togarmah, known as Kipchaks, spread throughout, and intermingled with, the peoples of southern Russia as far as China and as far west as Bulgaria, and the Ukraine. Azerbaijan should be a part of the house of Togarmah; but they have no record that they are.” (Ken Johnson, Th.D., Ancient Post-Flood History: Historical Evidences That Point To Biblical Creation, 2691-2796 (Kindle Edition)).
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. Amen.
