Libya

LIBYA (lĭb'ĭ-a). The ancient Greek name for northern Africa west of Egypt. The Hebrew is Put (Jer.46.9; Ezek.30.5; Ezek.38.5; Dan.11.43), and is so rendered by ASV and NIV, except Dan.11.43. It was the country of the Lubim, descendants of Ham (Gen.10.13). Cyrene was one of its cities (Acts.2.10).
