Isaiah 11 - KJV
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people,
shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of
the sea. 12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah
from the four corners of the earth.
Revelation 7 - RSV
1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth,

earth or sea or against any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a
loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea, 3 saying, "Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, till we have
sealed the servants of our God upon their foreheads."

The name given this civilization comes from the Old Testament where Cush (Hebrew: ×›×•×©) was one of the sons of Ham who settled in Northeast Africa.
In the Bible and archaically, a large region covering northern Sudan, modern day southern Egypt, and parts of Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somalia were
known as Cush.
Elam is the name of an ancient civilization located in what is now southwest Iran.
They occupied the land to the west of Shinar (modern day Iraq) while Nimrod and company were busy trying to build the tower and ancient city of Babel
Hama (ancient Hamath; Arabic: ØÙ…Ø§Ø©, meaning fortress) is a city on the banks of the Orontes river in central Syria. It is the provincial capital
of the Hama Governorate. It is the location of the historical city Hamat.

South East Asia - Philippines, Indonesia
So, with all these facts, the 12 tribes of Israel were scattered mostly in the middle east and some part of Ethiopia, Northern Sudan, and South East
Asia - Philippines or Indonesia. As for the Assyrians, they were scattered even more to the USA, Sweden, Jordan, Australia, Germany, France, Russia,
Canada, Armenia. The Israelites were all scattered in all 4 corners of the globe - North, South, East, West.
