ASUPPIM ə sup’ ĭm (בֵּ֥ית הָאֲסֻפִּֽים). The word, found in the KJV of 1 Chronicles 26:15, 17, is more correctly rendered, as in the RSV and the ASV, STOREHOUSE, i.e. the Temple storehouse. Nehemiah 12:25 KJV tr. the same word THRESHOLDS; RSV has STOREHOUSES.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

a-sup’-im, (beth ha-’acuppim):

In Ne 12:25, the King James Version renders the same word thresholds(King James Version, margin "treasuries, assemblies"). A storehouse most probably at the southern gate of the temple (1Ch 26:15,17; Ne 12:25).
