Gozan

Gozan [N] [E] [H]

seems in the Authorized Version of ( 1 Chronicles 5:26 ) to be the name of a river, but in ( 2 Kings 17:6 ) and 2Kin 18:11 it is evidently applied not to a river but a country. Gozan was the tract to which the Israelites were carried away captive by Pul, Tiglathpileser and Shalmaneser, or possibly Sargon. It is probably identical with the Gauzanitis of Ptolemy, and I may be regarded as represented by the Mygdonia of other writers. It was the tract watered by the Habor, the modern Khabour , the great Mesopotamian affluent of the Euphrates.
