Paddan Aram

PADDAN ARAM (pā'dăn-ā'răm, plain of Aram). The word originally, as shown by the cuneiform contract tablets, signified a unit of measuring. It is the home of Jacob’s exile (Gen.31.18), the home of Laban. It is almost certainly to be identified with Haran of the upper Euphrates Valley. It is also sometimes translated simply as “Mesopotamia.” In Gen.48.7 it is given as Paddan only.
