NAPHISH

na'-fish (naphish; Naphes, D, Napheth): A son of Ishmael (Gen 25:15; 1 Ch 1:31). Naphish, along with other Hagrite clans, was overwhelmingly defeated by the Israelite tribes on the East of the Jordan (1 Ch 5:19, the King James Version "Nephish"). Their descendants are mentioned among the Nethinim by the name "Nephisim," the King James Version and the Revised Version margin "Nephusim" (Ezr 2:50); "Nephushesim," the King James Version and the Revised Version margin "Nephishesim" (Neh 7:52); "Naphisi" (1 Esdras 5:31).
