    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 27:23

    Haran - In Mesopotamia; well known in Scripture.

    Canneh - Or Chalane, see Genesis 10:10. It is supposed to be a cape or port of Arabia Felix, on the Indian Sea.

    Eden - Equally famous: supposed to have been situated near the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates.

    Sheba - Different from that in Genesis 10:22. This was probably near the country of the Edomites.

    Asshur - Perhaps the Assyrians.

    Chilmad - Possibly Cholmadora, on the Euphrates. Ptol. lib. v.. cap. 15. For several of these places, and the persons from whom they derived their names, see Genesis 10 (note), and the notes there; and see Calmet.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 27:23

    Haran - Charrae in Mesopotamia.

    Canneh - "Calneh" Genesis 10:10, probably Ctesiphon on the Tigris.

    Eden - On the Euphrates Isaiah 37:12. "the merchants of Sheba" Here the towns or tribes that traded with Sheba. Sheba maintained a considerable trade with Mesopotamia.

    Chilmad - Possibly Kalwada near Bagdad.
