Phut (phŭt), afflicted, or a bow? Genesis 10:6. More properly Put, as in R. V., and 1 Chronicles 1:8, A. V. Phut was a son of Ham, and progenitor of an African people of the same name, though sometimes the name is rendered "Libya" or "Libyans." Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 27:10; Ezekiel 30:5; Ezekiel 38:5; Nahum 3:9, A V. But the R. V. reads "Put" in all cases. These people probably occupied Libya, in north Africa, near the Mediterranean coast. This is the land of the Moors in modern times.
