Elishah [N] [E] [H]

(God is salvation ), the eldest son of Javan. ( Genesis 10:4 ) The residence of his descendants is described in ( Ezekiel 27:7 ) as the isles of Elishah, whence the Phoenicians obtained their purple and blue dyes. Some connect the race of Elishah with the AEolians, others with Elishah, and in a more extended sense Peloponnesus, or even Hellas.
