"Hebrews is a term appearing 34 times within 32 verses of the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible)," according to Wikipedia. "While the term was not an ethnonym, it is mostly taken as synonymous with the Semitic Israelites, especially in the pre-monarchic period when they were still nomadic, but in some instances it may also be used in a wider sense, referring to the Phoenicians, or to other ancient groups, such as the group known as Shasu of Yhw on the eve of the Bronze Age collapse.

"By the Roman era, Greek Hebraios could refer to the Jews in general, as Strong's Hebrew Dictionary puts it "any of the Jewish Nation" and at other times more specifically to the Jews living in Judea.

"In Armenian, Italian, Greek, Kurdish, Old French, Russian, Romanian and a few other languages the transfer of the name from Hebrew to Jew never took place, and 'Hebrew' is the primary word used for a Jew."
