Biblical scholars have identified Madai with various nations, from the Mitanni of early records, to the Medes of much later records. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Madai is a son of Japheth and one of the 16 grandsons of Noah in the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible. The Kurds still maintain traditions of descent from Madai. According to the Book of Jubilees, Madai had married a daughter of Shem, and preferred to live among Shem' s descendants, rather than dwell in Japheth' s allotted inheritance beyond the Black Sea; so he begged his brothers-in-law, Elam, Asshur and Arphaxad, until he finally received from them the land that was named after him, Media. The Medes, reckoned to be his offspring by Josephus and most subsequent writers, were also known as Madai, including in both Assyrian and Hebrew sources.
