Zepho in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
ze'-fi, ze'-fo (tsephi, perhaps "gaze," or "gazing," in 1 Ch
1:36; tspho, the same meaning in Gen 36:11,15): A duke of
Edom. Septuagint has Sophar, which Skinner (Genesis, 431) says
may be the original of Job's kind friend. In Gen 36:43 the
Septuagint has Zaphoei (= tsepho, i.e. Zepho), for Iram.
Skinner holds it probable that the two names, Zepho and Iram,
were in the original text, thus making the number 12 (compare
Lagarde, Septuagint-Stud., II, 10, 1. 178; 37, 1. 270; Nestle,
Margin., 12). Lucian has Sophar, in Gen 36:11,15; Sepphoue, in
1 Ch 1:37, and Saphoin, in Gen 36:43.
