Zuph in Naves Topical Bible -1. A Kohathite 1Sa 1:1; 1Ch 6:35 -2. A district northwest of Jerusalem 1Sa 9:5

Zuph in Smiths Bible Dictionary (honeycomb), The land of, a district at which Saul and his servant arrived after passing through the possessions of Shalisha, of Shalim and of the Benjamites. 1Sa 9:5 only. It evidently contained the city in which they encountered Samuel, ver. 6, and that again was certainly not far from the "tomb of Rachel." It may perhaps be identified with Soba, a well-known place about seven miles due west of Jerusalem.

Zuph in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE zuf (tsuph, "honeycomb"): (1) According to 1 Sam 1:1b; 1 Ch 6:35 (Hebrew verse 20) = "Zophai" of 1 Ch 6:26 (11), an ancestor of Elkanah and Samuel. But Budde and Wellhausen take it to be an adjective, and so read tsuphi, in 1 Sam 1:1b: "Tohu a Zuphite, an Ephraimite." It should probably be read also in 1:1a: "Now there was a certain man of the Ramathites, a Zuphite of the hill-country of Ephraim," as the Hebrew construction in the first part of the verse is otherwise unnatural. The Septuagint's Codex Alexandrinus has Soup; Lucian has Souph in 1 Sam 1:1b; 1 Ch 6:26 (11); Codex Vaticanus has Souphei; Codex Alexandrinus and Lucian have Souphi; 6:35 (20), Codex Vaticanus and Codex Alexandrinus have Souph; Lucian has Souphi; and the Kethibh has tsiph. (2) The Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus and Codex Alexandrinus have Seiph; Lucian has Sipha, "the land of Zuph," a district in Benjamin, near its northern border (1 Sam 9:5). David Francis Roberts
