  19. Identifying ROSH “The Varangians (Vikings)… probably gave to Russia and its people the name by which they have been known for over 1000 years. Across the vast plain the Varangians early became known as the Rus or Rhos, possibly from the Finish word for ‘rowers’ and from this the name of Russia is derived.” Ian Grey,’the Horizon History of Russia’, page 20 (1970) “Rosh or Rhos … the modern Russians may have hence assumed their name, as Moscow and Tobolsk from Meshech and Tubal” Jamieson, Fausset and Brown, ‘Commentry on the Whole Bible’, page 721 (1961)
