Default Re: "EGYPT", is Nowhere in The Bible.

Strong's Number 04714 (the same as NOW written "Egypt") matches the Hebrew Mitsrayim
http://www.blueletterbible.org/tmp_dir/words/m/1160920864-1580.html

mizraim occurs 4 times in 4 verses:
Gen 10:6 And the sons 01121 of Ham 02526; Cush 03568, and Mizraim 04714, and Phut 06316, and Canaan 03667.
Gen 10:13 And Mizraim 04714 begat 03205 Ludim 03866, and Anamim 06047, and Lehabim 03853, and Naphtuhim 05320,
1Ch 1:8 The sons 01121 of Ham 02526; Cush 03568, and Mizraim 04714, Put 06316, and Canaan 03667.
1Ch 1:11 And Mizraim 04714 begat 03205 Ludim 03866, and Anamim 06047, and Lehabim 03853, and Naphtuhim 05320,

BUT, look up "Egypt", and you get;
Mitsrayim (Strong's 04714) occurs 681 times in 602 verses: Page 1, verses 1 - 25
So, WHY are 677 mentions of the word, turned into "Egypt"?

http://www.blueletterbible.org/tmp_dir/words/e/1160919852-8925.html
Egypt = "land of the Copts"

1) a country at the northeastern section of Africa, adjacent to Palestine, and through which the Nile flows

adj
Egyptians = "double straits"

2) the inhabitants or natives of Egypt

Authorized Version (KJV) Translation Count Total: 681
AV - Egypt 586, Egyptian 90, Mizraim 4, Egyptians + 01121 1; 681


And this (at below link) is what we're given, in answer to the meaning of the word, still written as Mizraim, NOT Egypt, as it's CHANGED to in all other references.
It only has one little bracketed mention of "a son of Ham"?!?
