Asup'pim (Hebrews Asuppim', אֲסֻפַּים, - collections; Sept. Α᾿σαφείν v. r. Ε᾿σεφίμ), a part of the Temple, to which two of the Levites of the family of Obed- edom were assigned as guards (1Ch 26:15,17). They were apparently the two northernmost gates in the western outer wall of the Temple, the space between them being inclosed for store-chambers, by the name of the "house of Asuppim" (see Strong's Harmony and Exposition of the Gospels, Appendix 2, p. 30). In the reference to the same building, as restored after the captivity (Ne 12:25), the term is falsely rendered "thresholds" (בִּאֲסֻפֵּי הִשּׁעָרַים, in the store-houses of the gates, Sept. πυλωροὶ φυλακῆς). SEE TEMPLE.
