Holman Bible Dictionary
(hyoo' fam) Original ancestor of clan of Benjamin in the wilderness (Numbers 26:39 ). Hupham may be the original reading behind Huppim in Genesis 46:21 and 1Chronicles 7:12, 1 Chronicles 7:15 . Comparison of Genesis 46:21 ; Numbers 26:38 ; 1 Chronicles 7:6 ; 1 Chronicles 8:1-2 shows the difficulty in restoring precisely the names of Benjamin's sons. Similarly, the sons of Bela, Benjamin's son, are difficult to restore ( Numbers 26:39-40 ; 1 Chronicles 7:7 ; 1 Chronicles 8:3-4 ). Part of the explanation may lie in the use of genealogies to claim membership in an important clan rather than to precisely reproduce family structures.
