Nephu'sim (Heb. Nephusai', נפוּסַים, so the marg.; but the text has Nephisim', נפַיסַים, expansions; Sept. Νεφουσίμ v.r. Ναφεισών; Vulg. Naphusim), the head of a family of "Temple servants" who returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Ezra 22:50). B.C. cir. 535. The parallel text (Ne 7:52) has (less correctly, it would seem) NEPHISHESIM (Heb. Nephishesim, נפַישׁסַים, g marg.; but text has Nephushesim', נפוּשׁסַים ; Sept. Νεφωσάς, v.r. Νεφωσασεί, Νεφωσαείμ, Νεφωσασείμ; Vulg. Naphussim). SEE NETHINIM.
