(Heb. Muppim', מֻפַּים, perh. contracted from מְעוּפַים in the sense of flights; Sept. Μαμφίμ, v.r. Ο᾿φιμίν and Ο᾿φιμίμ, Vulg. Mophim), a person named in Genesis 46:21 as one of the sons of Benjamin born before the migration into Egypt; but really a grandson born much later, being a son of Becher (q.v.), as it would seem from parallel accounts. (See BENJAMIN). He is doubtless the same elsewhere called SHEPHUPHIAM (1 Chronicles 8:5), SHUPHAM (Numbers 26:30), or SHUPPIM (1 Chronicles 7:12). (See JACOB).
