Of Chananea. cap. 37.

CHananea is a Country in Siria, that was after the sloud in the possession of the children of Chanaan, that was the sonne of Cham. And of them were tenne Nations, as Isidore sayth lib. 9. And 8. Nations of them were of the children of Chanaan, in which the curse that was gi∣uen to them by Cham was ordeined, as it were by heritage: and therefore by bidding of our Lord, ye children of Israel put them out, and occupied their lands, as Isidore saith li. 9.

(*Cham, called also God Cham, is the name of dignitie of the greate Empe∣rours of Tartarians, called the greate Cham of Cathay, or Cambalo, whose dominion extendeth from the furthest parte of the East, vnto the Countrye of Russia North West, and so vnto the North west, and so vnto the North Sea, on the South east, vnto Persia: so that by the mappe appeareth, there is vnder him as much maine lande, within litle; as is the residue of all Asia, Europa, and Affrica.)
