Shephupham, Shephuphan

SHEPHUPHAM, SHEPHUPHAN

she-fu'-fam or she-fu'-fan (shephupham; Codex Vaticanus and Codex Alexandrinus Sophan; Lucian, Sophan (Numbers 26:39)); or Shephuphan, shephuphan; Codex Vaticanus Sopharphak, Codex Alexandrinus Sophan, Lucian, Seppham (1 Chronicles 8:5), "a kind of serpent," Gray, HPN, 95):

Eponym of a Benjamite family. The name occurs in Genesis 46:21 as "Muppim" and in 1 Chronicles 7:12,15; 26:16 as "Shuppim." It is almost impossible to arrive at the original form; the gentilic "Shuphamites" appears in Numbers 26:39 (43).
