Third son of Ham, the name being also applied to his descendants, and to the district they inhabited. Genesis 10:6; 1 Chronicles 1:8; Ezekiel 27:10; Nahum 3:9 . The land of Phut is generally supposed to be the same as Libya, to 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 in Ezekiel 30:5; Ezekiel 38:5; and Libyans in Jeremiah 46:9 .
