Gishpa (Person)
GISHPA (PERSON) [Heb gišpāʾ (גִּשְׁפָּא)]. An overseer of the Nethinim, the temple officers (Neh 11:21). It has been noted (BDB, 177–78) that Gishpa may be a corruption of Hasupha. Myer (Ezra, Nehemiah AB) suggests this verse was a late edition and is dubious of a parallel between Gishpa and Hasupha.
