Phut Put


Phut, Put (a bow), the third name in the list of the sons of Ham, Gen. 10:6; 1 Chron. 1:8, elsewhere applied to an African country or people. The few mentions of Phut in the Bible clearly indicate a country or people of Africa, and, it must be added, probably not far from Egypt. Isa. 66:19; Jer. 46:9; Ezek. 27:10; 30:5; 38:5; Nah. 3:9. Some identify it with Libya, in the northern part of Africa, near the Mediterranean Sea; others, as Mr. Poole, with Nubia, south of Egypt.
