The biblical GN, '''ASSYRIA''' is the English rendering of the original [[ASSYRIAN|A<small>SSYRIAN</small>]] name of their homeland, Aššur, and the city of the same name, probably after their patron god, Aššur. As has been pointed out, the biblical genealogies give “Asshur, . . . the son of Shem” ([http://scriptures.lds.org/en/1_chr/1/17#17 1 Chronicles 1:17]) as the eponymous ancestor of the [[ASSYRIAN|A<small>SSYRIANS</small>]] (Reynolds, DBM 85).

Biblical GN 1. A great Near Eastern empire (2 Nephi 17:17, 18, 20 = Isaiah 7:17, 18, 20; 2 Nephi 18:4, 7 = Isaiah 8:4, 7; 2 Nephi 20:12 = Isaiah 10:12; 2 Nephi 21:11, 16 = Isaiah 11:11, 16)

Etymology

ASSYRIA is the name of an ancient Near Eastern land located in Mesopotamia. It occurs in the ISAIAH section of the 2 Nephi with reference to the biblical land but does not refer to a separate Book of Mormon GN or PN. The GN ASSYRIA may derive from one of their capitals, Assur, itself probably taken from their national god, Assur.
