Meunim, Meunites

Meunim, Meunites (Myoo´nim myoo´nits)

An ancient people of disputed and unknown provenance. The Meunim are referred to in (1Chr 4:41; Ezra 2:50; and Neh 7:52). The same people (apparently) are referred to as the Meunites in (2Chr 20:1 and 2Chr 20:26:7). Both Meunim and Meunites are sometimes identified in LXX references with the people known elsewhere in history as Minaeans. In Ezra 2:50, (Neh 7:52) the Meunim are Temple servants.
