Smith's Bible Dictionary
Joppa or Japho

(beauty), now Jaffa , a town on the southwest coast of Palestine, in the portion of Dan. (Joshua 19:46) Having a harbor attached to it --though always, as still, a dangerous one --it became the port of Jerusalem in the days of Solomon, and has been ever since. Here Jonah "took ship to flee from the presence of his Maker." Here, on the house-top of Simon the tanner, "by the seaside," St. Peter had his vision of tolerance. (Acts 11:5) The existing town contains about 4000 inhabitants.
