This source clarifies several things. First, both the words Ethiopian and Maurus were used as generic terms for black peoples yet they were associated with different regions. The term “Ethiopian” was used for northeastern and eastern Africa while “Maurus”, the Greek translation was Mauri and the Latin translation was Maurus, was used for northwestern Africa.

Secondly, this source confirms that the word “Moor” was used synonymously with different black peoples in Late Classical Antiquity, Medieval, and Renaissance Europe.

By Black History In The Bible

"And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God." - John 8:45-47
