(Hebrew Magbish', מִגַבַּישׁ , gathering; Sept. Μαγεβίς,Vulg. Megbis), a man whose descendants (so Clericus, ad loc., who compares the Persian name Megabyzus, Herod. 2:70, 160) to the number of 156 returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:30). It is omitted in the parallel list (Nehemiah 7:33-34). Most interpreters regard it as the name of a place, probably in Palestine, and if so, doubtless in Benjamin, as the associated names are those of localities in that tribe. But it was perhaps rather another form for that of the Maygpiash (q.v.) of Nehemiah 10:20, where some of the same names are mentioned in a similar connection.
