Lehabites



LEHABIM lĭ hā’ bĭm (לְהָבִ֖ים). A people descended from Egypt, together with the Ludim, Anamim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim, Casluhim, and the Caphtorim (Gen 10:13, 14; 1 Chron 1:11). Nothing is known about them, but some scholars suggest that the word should be emended to “Lubim” or Libyans. See Libya, Libyans.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Named in Ge 10:13; 1Ch 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.
