Zephi in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Son of Eliphaz, son of Esau; "duke," i.e. tribe chief, of Edom.

Zephi in Naves Topical Bible -See ZEPHO

Zephi in Smiths Bible Dictionary 1Ch 1:36 [ZEPHO]

Zephi 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. David Francis Roberts

Zephi Scripture - 1 Chronicles 1:36 The sons of Eliphaz; Teman, and Omar, Zephi, and Gatam, Kenaz, and Timna, and Amalek.
