No, John look back at your own quote. It is not "the Cushi" which would
probably indicate membership in the tribe, but simply Cushi, used as a name.
Now the person would probably not have gotten this name, if there were not
some reference intended to the Cushites, but that could simply be that
someone had kidded him about being "as dark as a Cushite", or talking like a
Chsuite or anything else, and the name stuck.If the author had intended to
say that this servant of the king was a Cushite, he would have done so,
I notice that you ignored the fact that your own source, as quoted above
contradicts your silly claim..

And this particular man named Jehudi was sthe son of a man named Cushi, and
the two of them have no apparent connedtion to your delusion.

> Jehudi was a COMPLETELY different genealogy than Judah, Joe:
You have not posted anything about a geneology of Jehudi, only that there
was once a man of that name who had a father named Cushi.

Jehudi does not appear anywhere in your welter of geneological trivia.

Your own source above, denies that, and nothing you posted this time
