Headword: Θαρσεῖς
Adler number: theta,54
Translated headword: Tharseis, Tarshish
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Tharseis is what] Isaiah and Ezekiel call Carthage, the [city] lying in front of Libya.[1] Saba [is] the Ethiopian race. But Libyans, who are also called Africans, hold the western parts of the inhabited world, Ethiopians the east and south, Arabs the central land-mass, and the Islanders the middle parts of the sea. These men he said[2] shall fall down in the presence of God. "In the presence of God Ethiopians shall fall down". David [sc. writes this].
Greek Original:
Θαρσεῖς τὴν Καρχηδόνα, τὴν τῆς Λιβύης προκαθημένην, Ἠσαί̈ας καὶ Ἰεζεκιὴλ ὀνομάζουσι. Σαβὰ δὲ Αἰθιοπικὸν ἔθνος. ἀλλὰ Λίβυες μέν, οἱ καὶ Ἄφροι προσαγορευόμενοι, τὰ ἑσπέρια τῆς οἰκουμένης κατέχουσι τμήματα, Αἰθίοπες δὲ τὰ ἑῷα καὶ νότια, Ἄραβες δὲ τὴν μέσην ἤπει- ρον, οἱ δὲ Νησιῶται τῆς θαλάσσης τὰ μέσα. τούτους ἔφης προπεσεῖσθαι ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ. ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ προπεσοῦνται Αἰθίοπες. Δαβίδ.
