Phut; Put

Boyd’s Bible Dictionary:

(1 Chron. 1:8). [PHUT.]

Concise Bible Dictionary:

Third son of Ham, the name being also applied to his descendants, and to the district they inhabited (Gen. 10:6; 1 Chron. 1:8; Ezek. 27:10; Nah. 3:9). The land of Phut is generally supposed to be the same as Libya, in the N.W. of Egypt. A broken fragment of the annals of Nebuchadnezzar mentions “the city of Phut-Yavan,” or “Phut of the Ionians” (that is Greeks). This however may refer to a different people. The same Hebrew word is translated Libya (Ezek. 30:5; Ezek. 38:5); and Libyans (Jer. 46:9).

Strong’s Dictionary of Hebrew Words:
