The word translated "Syrian" is actually "Aramaean." Jacob's tribe, which originated in Syria when he was in the employ of Laban (Genesis 29,30), did not become the nation of Israel as such until Jacob had first received the name "Israel," and his children became known as "the children of Israel" when they went with him down into Egypt.
