high land, occurs only in Authorized Version, 2 Kings 19:37 ; in Revised Version, "Ararat," which is the Hebrew word. A country in western Asia lying between the Caspian and the Black Sea. Here the ark of Noah rested after the Deluge ( Genesis 8:4 ). It is for the most part high table-land, and is watered by the Aras, the Kur, the Euphrates, and the Tigris. Ararat was properly the name of a part of ancient Armenia. Three provinces of Armenia are mentioned in Jeremiah 51:27 , Ararat, Minni, and Ashchenaz. Some, however, think Minni a contraction for Armenia. (See ARARAT .)
