By far the most frequent mention of Africa in the Bible has to do with Egypt (see EGYPT; GOSHEN; NILE). The land of Ethiopia is also mentioned frequently, sometimes under the name of Cush (see ETHIOPIA). Other African nations mentioned in the Bible are Libya (2 Chronicles 12:3; 2 Chronicles 16:8; Daniel 11:43), Put (Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 30:5; Ezekiel 38:5; Nahum 3:9), and Lud (Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 30:5). (For additional New Testament references to Africa see ALEXANDRIA; CYRENE.)
