Hamath (Near East geography model)

Elam appears in Nephi's quotation of Isaiah. Hamath is compatred to Arpad, suggesting it has also been conquered in a manifestation of the Lord's power. It is again mentioned along with Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, the islands of the sea as one of the locations that the remnant of his people will be gathered from. It might be identified with modern Hama, a city on the banks of the Orontes river in central Syria.
