[GOH-shen; “mound of earth”] A region in Egypt where the household of Jacob settled; the land provided rich pastures for the grazing of livestock. Equated with the “district of Rameses” (compare Genesis 47:6, 11), Goshen is identified with the region of the E Nile Delta where the cities of Pithom and Rameses once stood. It continued to be inhabited by the Israelites until the time of the Exodus, and was partly shielded from the plagues that fell on Egypt. Genesis 46:34-47:27; Exodus 8:22; 9:26
