Shuhite [E]

(decendant of Shuah ). This ethnic appellative "Shuhite" is frequent in the book of Job, but only as the apithet of one person, Bildad The local indications of this book point to a region on the western side of Chaldea, bordering on Arabia; and exactly in this locality, above Hit and on both sides of the Euphrates, are found, in the Assyrian inscriptions, the Tsahi , a powerful people. It is probable that these were the Shuhites. [E] indicates this entry was also found in Easton's Bible Dictionary
