NAPHISH. A son of Ishmael ( Genesis 25:15 = 1 Chronicles 1:31 ). In all probability it is his descendants who are mentioned in Ezra 2:50 as ‘the children of Nephisim ’ (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ) or Nephusim (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ). In the parallel passage ( Nehemiah 7:52 ) the reading is Nephushesim (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ) or Nephishesim (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ). The reading in 1Es 5:31 is Nephisi .
