Jaredite GN 1. "Large, to exceed all," waters of, north of RAMAH and OGATH (Ether 15:8, 10)

Until a possible language origin for JAREDITE can be determined, all suggestions for etymologies of JAREDITE names must remain more speculative than substantive.

Likely with Sumerian rib “surpassing, outstanding, massive; strong.”[1]

The -LIAN- element (as for -REAN- in IRREANTUM) might be derived from the Semitic root rwy “abundant waters,” with the nominalizing affix -n. In such an instance, the -r- following a bilabial plosive would perforce change to an -l-. Cf. Tupliaš River (Akkadian) = Duweirig.

Cf. also Riblah, "Fertility,"[2] city halfway between HAMATH & DAMASCUS, 11 km south of Qadesh, Syria, on the east bank of the Orontes (2 Kings 25:6, 18-21; Jeremiah 39:5-7; 52:26-27).

Cf. Book of Mormon RIPLAH, RIPLAKISH, CORIANTUM, MORIANCUMER, LIB, CUMORAH, IRREANTUM

  2. Bruce Metzger, ed., “Topical Index to the Bible,” 174, in his Exhaustive Concordance (NRSV) (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 1991); cf. Arabic root rbl “fertile, abundant; crafty, cunning,” as in rîbala “cunning, crafty lion” (E. Lane, Arabic-English Lexicon, I:1022-1023).
