Morrish Bible Dictionary [6]


International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [7]

put ( פּוּט , pūṭ  ; Φούδ , Phoúd , in Genesis and Chronicles, variant for Genesis Φούτ , Phoút , for Chronicles, Φούθ , Phoúth ):

1. Renderings:

In consequence of the identification at the time, the prophets have "Libya" ( Αίβυες , Lı́bues ), except Nab   Exodus 3:9 , where the Greek renders the word as φυγή , phugḗ , "flight." The Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) has "Phut," "Phuth," and in the Prophets "Libyes" and "Libya"; the King James Version "Phut."

2. Son of Ham:

In the "Table of Nations" Put is the third son of Ham ( Genesis 10:6 ), the first and second being Cush and Misraim, and the fourth Canaan. Put is the only one of the sons of Ham who is not credited with descendants.

3. As Nationality:

In the Prophets, warriors from Put are referred to, principally in connection with the forces of Egypt. They appear as shield-bearers ( Jeremiah 46:9 : "Cush and Put, that handle the shield; and the Ludim, that handle and bend the bow"). See also   Ezekiel 30:5 , where the order in the Hebrew is Cush, Put and Lud. In  Nahum 3:9 Put is the helper of No-amon (Thebes in Egypt), and in   Ezekiel 27:10 Put appears with Persia and Lydia (Lud) as being in the army of Tyre.

4. Identified with Punt:

The common identification of Put is the Egyptian Punt (or Pwent ) proposed by Ebers. The assimilation of n to a following consonant is common in the Semitic languages, and would occasion no difficulty if the vocalization be found to agree. The final t of Punt, however, seems to be the Egyptian feminine ending, whereas the of Put is radical.

5. Somaliland and Yemen:

Nevertheless, the district would seem to be rightly identified with the tract to the East of Abyssinia (Somaliland), and as it is described as being on both sides of the sea (the Red Sea), Yemen would seem to be included. In connection with this, it is worthy of note that a fragment of a Babylonian tablet referring to Nebuchadrezzar's campaign in Egypt in his 37th year mentions, as though in the neighborhood, the city (here, apparently, standing for the district) of Puṭu - yāman - probably not "Ionian (Greek) Put" (Lesbos, according to Winckler), but "Put of Yemen." If this be in contra-distinction to the district of Put (Punt) on the African mainland, the latter would be the Pûṭu referred to in the Persian inscription of Naqsh-i-Rustem, which mentions, among the tributary-countries, Kushiya, Putiya and Masiya, in Babylonian ( mât ) Pûṭa , (( mât ) K ) ûšu , ( mât ) Massû (?), "the land Put, the land Kush (Ethiopia), the land Massû (?)." The soldiers of Put in the army of Tyre may have been either from the African or the Yemenite Put, in which case there was no northern tract of that name, unless settlements had been made at any time from the original district. See W. Max Muller, Asien und Europa , Leipzig, 1893,106 ff.
