Lehabim [N] [H]

(fiery, flaming ), occurring only in ( Genesis 10:13 ) the name of a Mizraite people or tribe. There can be no doubt that they are the same as the Rebu or Lebu of the Egyptian inscriptions,a nd that from them Libya and the Libyans derived their name. These primitive Libyans appear to have inhabited the northern part of Africa to the west of Egypt, though latterly driven from the coast by the Greek colonists of the Cyrenaica.

LEHABIM

le-ha'-bim (lehdbhim):

Named in Genesis 10:13; 1 Chronicles 1:11 as descendants of Mizraim. They are probably to be identified with the LUBIM (which see), and the one word may be a corruption of the other.
