Etymology[уреди]

From Латински Palaestīna (Roman province of Palestine), from Антички Грчки Παλαιστίνη (Palaistínē, Philistia and the surrounding region), from Хебрејски פְּלֶשֶׁת(p'léshet, Philistia, land of the Philistines),[1][2] from the root פ־ל־ש(p-l-š, migrate, invade).[3] The term P-l-s-t or P-r-s-t, found in five Ancient Egyptian inscriptions (beginning with one at Medinet Habu from circa 1170 BCE and ending with Padiiset's Statue inscription from circa 900-850 BCE) as the name of a people near Egypt, is traditionally taken to be cognate.[4][5] Seven Assyrian inscriptions contain the word "Palas(h)tu" or "Pilistu", which is usually also taken to be cognate.[6][7]
