mag´bish ( מגבּיש , maghbı̄sh ; Septuagint: Codex Vaticanus Μαγεβώς , Magebṓs ; Codex Alexandrinus Μααβείς , Maabeı́s ): An unidentified town in Benjamin, 156 of the inhabitants of which are said to have returned from exile with Zerubbabel ( Ezra 2:30 ). It does not appear in Nehemiah's list (Nehemiah 7:33 ). Septuagint (Codex Vaticanus), however, has Magebōs . The name is probably identical with Magpiash, "one who sealed the covenant" (Nehemiah 10:20 ).
