Lubims
Lubim, apparently the same with Lehabim ( Genesis 10:13, ,)were probably the ancient inhabitants of Lybia, (called Lubi in the Syriac version, Acts 2:10, ,)a district of Africa, adjoining to Egypt, and extending along the shore of the Mediterranean as far as the city of Cyrene.

the Sukkiims
The Sukkiim, (from {sachach,} "to cover,") are supposed to have been the Troglodites, as the LXX. and Vulgate render, a people of Egypt, on the west of the Red Sea, so called because they dwelt [en troglais,] in caves.

Ethiopians
These Cushim were probably the inhabitants of Ethiopia, south of Egypt.
