they of Ham
1 Chronicles 4:40
4:40 they of Ham. The reference is probably to the Egyptians. Egypt is called “the land of Ham” (Psalm 105:23), and the customary name for Egypt in the Bible is Mizraim, the second son of Ham. In the original dispersion from Babel, Mizraim and his descendants probably spent some time in the southern areas of Canaan’s land on their eventual migration into Egypt. This was the area later taken over by the Simeonites in the lands officially assigned by Joshua to the tribe of Judah.
