Cush

Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. A song.
   1 He has founded his city on the holy mountain.
2 The LORD loves the gates of Zion
   more than all the other dwellings of Jacob.
   3 Glorious things are said of you,
   city of God:
4 “I will record Rahab and Babylon
   among those who acknowledge me—
Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush—
   and will say, ‘This one was born in Zion.’”
5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said,
   “This one and that one were born in her,
   and the Most High himself will establish her.”
6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples:
   “This one was born in Zion.”
   7 As they make music they will sing,
   “All my fountains are in you.”

Cush has a long standing tradition in the Hebrew Bible. From Genesis where it as listed as a river of paradise. Cush is also known as Ethiopia, Nubia or Abyssinia! Easton's Bible Dictionary also claims that ancient Egypt referred to Cush as Kesh! Kush is another way Cush is spelled. Moses was to have had a blood ceremony with a Cushite where he was known as a bridegroom of blood!

Cush warred with others and known to be a mighty army! 

Woe to the land of whirring wings[a]
    along the rivers of Cush,[b]
which sends envoys by sea
    in papyrus boats over the water.

Go, swift messengers,
to a people tall and smooth-skinned,
    to a people feared far and wide,
an aggressive nation of strange speech,
    whose land is divided by rivers. 

Cush was from the family of Ham and for African American Gentiles under a curse...

Cush [Cŭsh]—black or ethiopia.
  1. Eldest son of Ham and grandson of Noah and founder of a tribal family (Gen. 10:6-8; 1 Chron. 1:8-10). Also the name of the land where the Cushites dwelt (Isa. 11:11; 18:1). Cushite is translated Ethiopian.
  2. A Benjamite, and enemy of David. (See Fausset’s dictionary).

The King of Gondor was an Ethiopian king whose Bible is still found today in museums with posters for those who want to show the Afracentric profile.

Blessings!
