Town of Ophrah, Benjamin

 

(fawn).

A town in the tribe of Benjamin. (Joshua 18:23; 1 Samuel 13:17) Jerome places it five miles east of Bethel. It is perhaps et-Taiyibeh, a small village on the crown of a conspicuous hill, four miles east-northeast of Beitin (Bethel).

 

* See other occurrences of the same term: Ophrah.
