Bible Names N-Z: Ziph


Ziph in Easton's Bible Dictionary flowing. (1.) A son of Jehaleleel (1 Chr. 4:16). (2.) A city in the south of Judah (Josh. 15:24), probably at the pass of Sufah. (3.) A city in the mountains of Judah (Josh. 15:55), identified with the uninhabited ruins of Tell ez-Zif, about 5 miles south-east of Hebron. Here David hid himself during his wanderings (1 Sam. 23:19; Ps. 54, title).

Ziph in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. In southern Judah ( negeb ) (Joshua 15:24). In the Imperial Dictionary the name is connected with Sufah, and the site is supposed to be at the ascent of Akrabbim. 2. A town in the hill country of Judah (Joshua 15:55); mentioned between Carmel and Juttah. David took refuge in a wood, then in a wilderness ( midbar , an unenclosed pasture ground) adjoining (1 Samuel 23:14-24; 1 Samuel 26:2). On both occasions the Ziphites discovered him to Saul. The last interview of David and Jonathan was in the wood here. A round hill, 100 ft. high, about three miles S. of Hebron, is still called Tell Zif. Three miles further S. is Kurmul (Carmel), and between them to the W. of the road is Yutta (Juttah). Rehoboam fortified Ziph (2 Chronicles 11:8), probably Tell Ziph. Half a mile off eastward are ruins at the head of two small wadies running off toward the Dead Sea. Lieut. Conder disputes the existence of a wood at Ziph; there are no springs of any size, and the soil is chalky. Septuagint and Josephus substitute "the new place" for "the wood of Ziph." The village Khirbet Khoreisa, one mile S. of Ziph, answers to "the wood of Ziph" as KJV translates; the difference between the Hebrew choresh and the Septuagint reading is a difference merely of points; the choresh of Ziph was a village belonging to the larger town at Tell Ziph.

Ziph in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE zif (ziph; Ozeib, or Ziph): (1) A town in the hill country of Judah, mentioned along with Maon, Carmel and Jutah (Josh 15:55). It is chiefly celebrated in connection with the earlier history of David: "David .... remained in the hill-country in the wilderness of Ziph" (1 Sam 23:14,15,24; 26:2); the Ziphites (1 Sam 23:19; 26:1; compare Ps 54 title) sought to betray him to Saul, but David escaped. Ziph was fortified by Rehoboam (2 Ch 11:8). The name also occurs in 1 Ch 2:42; 4:16. In connection with this last (compare 4:23) it is noticeable that Ziph is one of the four names occurring on the Hebrew stamped jar handles with the added la-melekh, "to the king." The site is Tell Zif, 4 miles Southeast of Hebron, conspicuous hill 2,882 ft. above sea-level; there are cisterns and, to the East, some ruins (PEF, III, 312, 315). (2) A town in the Negeb of Judah (Josh 15:24), site unknown. E. W. G. Masterman
