Put
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
The third son of Ham and grandson of Noah (Gen 10:6; 1 Chr 1:8). The Table of Nations could be suggesting that Put is the eponymous ancestor of the land that ancient Egyptians referred to as “Put,” located south of Cush near or in modern Somaliland. “Put” also could refer to a region of Libya, based on occurrences elsewhere in the Old Testament (Jer 46:9; Ezek 27:10; 30:5; 38:5; Nah 3:9). The Table of Nations and the Chronicler do not list any descendants of Put, despite listing the descendants of Put’s brothers.
