North Macedonia has only really existed for the last 30 years. In ancient times it was called Paeonia. The Macedonia mentioned in the Bible is a region of the Hellenic Republic (aka Greece) and thus doesn't exist as a country today.

Please specify bible version. Armenia, Syria (Damascus), Iraq, (Garden of Eden), Iran (Persia), Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey (Asia) and Italy (Rome) are all mentioned in King James Version which is the correct and original English translation. France, Spain, and India are not. This quiz is not very consistent with information.

Syria is mentioned 129 times in the Authorized (King James) Version: first in Genesis 25:20, notably in 1 Kings 19:15 (and throughout Kings and Chronicles), and in the New Testament, particularly in Luke 2:2 ("Cyrenius was Governor of Syria" when Jesus was born).

On a less serious note, there are many other country names (particularly the shorter ones) which can be literally found in the Bible - such as Chad:

Daniel 1:1 - "In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came NebuCHADnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it."
