Bible The Arabians Arabia

No one. The Arabians are from the peninsula of Arabia, so they are not near the land of Cannon, or Egypt where the Bible people are. They claim through Islam that they are the descendants of Ismael, but from a historical perspective that is suspect. But from a theological religious perspective that is where they claim their heritage. This is all from the Koran. Nothing from the Bible alludes to this. Even today the people from Iran, Iraq, Kuwait are not Arabs.

Arabia, Arabians In The Bible Studies Doctrine Mormon

According to the LDS Bible Dictionary Arabia was divided into sections of tribes / races:

Attached Image QUOTE
The inhabitants of southern Arabia are called in the O.T. Joktanites (Gen. 10: 26-30). A semitic trading race, they were closely allied to the Abyssinians. In middle Arabia were the Ishmaelites, who claimed descent from Abraham, but in language were more closely allied to the people of southern Arabia than to the Hebrews. In northern Arabia were a large number of wandering tribes, of whom the Midianites were the chief, descended from Abraham and Keturab (Gen. 25: 1-4). These tribes are frequently called in O.T. 'the Children of the East."

Bible The Arabians Arabia

Yes you are correct. The bible talks of other tribes that existed in Arabia. Arabs are a culture or identity of a people that did not come into being much later. Many of these tribes over hundreds of years eventually merged together into a new people or identity which we call Arabic. So as for modern Arabs there is no direct ancestor in the bible that they are directly linked too. Just as there are a few tribes that are mentioned, there are many more who are not talked about in the OT. All of these tribes eventually merge into a new people, that contribute to the Arabic culture. So will you find any ancient culture that is the direct linage, and foundational identity of modern Arabs? No but you will find tribes that died out whose children over hundreds of years intermingled into other tribes who mingles with others who after hundreds of years merge as the Arabic culture.
