Spanish scholar and Bible commentator of the fifteenth century; it is said, but not known with certainty, that he was a physician also. He wrote a commentary on Lamentations, entitled "Perush Megillat Ekah," which appeared in Salonica, 1595. He was the author of the following works also, which have been preserved in manuscript: "Mebaḳḳesh ha-Shem," sermons on the weekly Torah lessons, beginning with Ki Tissa and continued to Niẓẓabim; and a commentary on Canticles, in which his name is given as Samuel Bibas ().
