Cushi and Cushite

  1. A Cushite messenger was sent by Joab to David to announce his victory over Absalom.

    And the king said to the Cushite, “Is the young man Absalom safe?” So the Cushite answered, “May the enemies of my lord the king, and all who rise against you to do harm, be like that young man!” —2 Samuel 18:32 NKJV

  2. Cushi was the father of Shelemiah (Jeremiah 36:14)

  3. Cushi, the 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.
