Genesis 11:18

And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu. Or Ragau, as he is called in the Septuagint version, the letter e being pronounced as a "G", as in Gaza and Gomorrah: he is supposed to give name to a large plain called Ragau, near Assyria, about Tigris and Euphrates,

"Even in those days king Nabuchodonosor made war with king Arphaxad in the great plain, which is the plain in the borders of Ragau.'' (Judith 1:5)

and to Ragis in Media,

"In that day Tobit remembered the money which he had committed to Gabael in Rages of Media,'' (Tobit 4:1)

where Strabo {f} makes mention of a city of the same name.
