שָׁפָן m.

(1) a quadruped (which chews the cud like a hare), Levit. 11:5 Deuteronomy 14:7 which lives gregariously on rocks, and is remarked for its cunning, Psalms 104:18; Proverbs 30:26. The Rabbins render it coney; more correctly the LXX. in three places, χοιρογρύλλιος, i.e. mus jaculus Linn., Arab. يربوع, Jerboa, an animal of the size of the coney, with a head resembling that of a hog, with long hind legs fitted for leaping; it inhabits burrows dug in the mud, and is remarkably cunning. It is either so called from its burrows in which it hides itself, or from its cunning. See Bochart, Hieroz. i. p. 1001, seqq. Oedmann, Verm. Sammlungen, iv. p. 48.

(2) [Shaphan], pr.n.

(a) a scribe of Josiah, 2 Kings 22:3, 12 2 Kings 22:12; Jeremiah 36:10, compare Ezekiel 8:11.
