Ophrah
Lexicons
Hebrew - Ophrah
Ophrah -

1. In Benjamin (Joshua 18:23; 1 Samuel 13:17). Jerome makes it five miles E. of Bethel. Probably the same as Ephron. (See EPHRON; EPHRAIM.) Taiyibeh is now on its site.

2. Ophrah of the Abiezrites, Gideon's place of birth (Judges 6:11-24; Judges 8:32; Judges 9:5), residence, and burial. He put the ephod here which he had adorned with the Midianites' gold, and to it all Israel resorted in pilgrimage for worship, a spiritual "whoring" (Judges 8:27). In Manasseh, not far from Shechem (Judges 9:1; Judges 9:5). Now Erfai (Van de Velde); Erafa (Schwartz). Epher a head of Manasseh probably gave the name (1 Chronicles 5:24), migrating there with Abiezer and Shechem (Numbers 26:30; Joshua 17:2).

3. 1 Chronicles 4:14, "Meonothai begat (or else founded) Ophrah" of Judah.
