EPHRATH; EPHRATHAH

ef'-rath, e'-frath, ef'-ra-tha, ef-ra'-tha ('ephrath; Ephratha; Genesis 35:16; Genesis 48:7); ('ephrathah, in the other references: Joshua 15:59 (in added verse of Septuagint only); Ruth 4:11 1 Chronicles 2:19, 24, 50; Psalm 132:6 Micah 5:2, the King James Version "Ephratah"):

The name either of Bethlehem itself or of a district in which Bethlehem was situated. A man of this place was called an Ephrathite (Ruth 1:2 1 Samuel 17:12). It is held by many authorities that the Ephrath where Rachel was buried (Genesis 35:16; Genesis 48:7) was a different place, the words "the same is Bethlehem" being a gloss. The reading in Psalm 132:6 is doubtful; the Revised Version, margin has "Ephraim."
