|MAGBISH - |
mag'-bish (maghbish; Septuagint:
Codex Vaticanus Magebos; Codex Alexandrinus Maabeis): An unidentified town in Benjamin, 156 of the inhabitants of which are said to have returned from exile with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:30). It does not appear in Nehemiah's list (Nehemiah 7:33). Septuagint (Codex Vaticanus), however, has Magebos. The name is probably identical with Magpiash, "one who sealed the covenant" (Nehemiah 10:20).
