LIBYA; LIBYANS

lib'-i-a, lib'-i-anz: In the Old Testament the word occurs in the King James Version in 2 Chronicles 12:3; 2 Chronicles 16:8 Nahum 3:9 for "Lubim" (thus the Revised Version (British and American)). the Revised Version (British and American), however, retains "Libyans" in Daniel 11:43. In Jeremiah 46:9 Ezekiel 30:5; Ezekiel 38:5, the words are replaced in the Revised Version (British and American) by PUT (which see). In the New Testament the word "Libya" (Libue) occurs, in close connection with CYRENE (which see) (Acts 2:10). Greek and Roman writers apply the term to the African continent, generally excluding Egypt.
