ZEPHO [SMITH]

(watch-tower), son of Eliphaz, son of Esau, (Genesis 36:11) and one of the "dukes" or phylarchs of the Edomites. ver. (Genesis 36:15) In (1 Chronicles 1:36) he is called ZEPHI. (B.C. after 1760.)

ZEPHI; ZEPHO [ISBE]

ZEPHI; ZEPHO - 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.
