-Elam, Elamites: comprised with the Online Bible dictionaries: The inhabitants of Elam.(in today's Iraq).or 'the Highlands,' to the east of Babylon, were called Elamites. Elam extended to the shore of the Mediterranean, a distance in a direct line of about 1,000 miles. The name Elam is an Assyrian word meaning 'high'.

The nation of Elam existed from the time of the beginning of mankind on Earth. It was one of the first nations. They were descedants of Elam, who was a son of Shem. Shem was one of Noah's three sons:.Genesis 10:1,22.

Babylonia was frequently invaded by the Elamite kings, who at times asserted their supremacy over it as in the case of Chedorlaomer, king of Elam in the time of Abraham.

Ancient Babylon today is in Iraq. They were divided into several branches, speaking different dialects of the same language. 

The later Assyrian monarchs made several campaigns against Elam and finally Assur-bani-pal in about B.C.E. 650 succeeded in conquering the country, which was ravaged with fire and sword. On the fall of the Assyrian Empire, Elam passed into the hands of the Persians.

-Ephraim/Ephraimites:.Israel as used in the Bible today.refers to spiritual persons and Ephraim is used to denote those of spiritual Israel, those in Christ. The words Israel and Ephraim refer to the same thing, an important portion of the ancient nation of Israel that was Ephraim.

Ephraim came to be a general name for those of ancient Israel
The ancient lineage is Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Joseph. Ephraim was youngest son of Joseph. Joseph's other son was Manasseh.

Genesis 41:50-52 "And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him. And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh, For God, said he, has made me forget all my toil and all my father's house. And the name of the second called he Ephraim, For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction."
Genesis 48:1 "...he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim."

Jacob's name was changed to Israel. He was the grandson of Abraham

Manasseh was older brother of Ephraim. The promises God inspired Joseph to confer upon these lines and have throughout history been fulfilled in the nations of Britain.(Ephraim), her Empire.(before she abrogated it physically and continued it financially, see Empire of the City; type into Google. Brigheton.com. YouTube, etc.).and the United States of America.(Manasseh):.Genesis 48:9-20.

Ancient Ephraim had the wrong kind of pride which led to its downfall:.Judges 12:1-6.

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary: Manasseh was the eldest son of Joseph, born in Egypt from a woman named Asenath given to him by pharaoh:.Genesis 41:44,45

Manasseh's descendants constituted a full tribe. This was divided in the promised land.(Numbers 13:18-21), one part having settled east of the Jordan river in the country of Bashan, from the river Jabbok northwards and the other west of the Jordan, between Ephraim and Issachar.(map), extending from the Jordan river to the Mediterranean:.Numbers 34:13-15. Bashan was far inferior to the land of Ephraim in wealth and power of its people.
