Cushite @ (1.) The messenger sent by Joab to David to announce his victory over Absalom ( 2Samuel:18:32). (2.) The father of Shelemiah Jeremiah:36:14). (3.) Son of Gedaliah, and father of the prophet Zephaniah (1:1). (4.) Moses married a Cushite woman Numbers:12:1). From this circumstance some have supposed that Zipporah was meant, and hence that Midian was Cush.
