Shapher, mount

("pleasant".) Numbers 33:23-24. Either jebel esh Shureif, 40 miles W. of Ras el Ka'a (near Rissah), or else jebel Sherafeh, a rocky promontory on the W. shore of the Elanitic gulf, near the southern limit of the Tih. The former is more likely (Speaker's Commentary). Jebel Araif, a conical hill, standing out at the S.W. corner of the wilderness of Ziu. The wady Shareif at the N. side may be a corruption of Shapher. Here is a broad pleasant valley, affording fine pasture (Imperial Dictionary).
