LUBIM. The name of a people, standing in EV [Note: English Version.] for the Libyans in Nahum 3:9 , 2Ch 12:3 ; 2 Chronicles 16:8 , and replaced by the word ‘Libyans’ itself in Daniel 11:43 . These were a very ancient people living west of Egypt, who were subdued by the Egyptians at an early date and long furnished mercenary soldiers to their armies. At length they invaded Egypt, subdued it in the 10th cent. b.c., and established a powerful dynasty, of which the Biblical Shishak was the founder. Probably Lubim should be read for Ludim (wh. see) in certain passages. Cf. Lehabim.
