Tappush

Tappush

(the apple-city ).

  1. A city of Judah, of the Shefelah or lowland. ( Joshua 15:34 )
  2. A place on the boundary of the "children of Joseph." ( Joshua 16:8 ; 17:8 ) Its full name was probably En-tappuah. ( Joshua 17:7 ) ("Around the city was a district called the land of Tappuah; the city belonged to Ephraim and the land to Manasseh. ( Joshua 17:8 ) " --Schaff.)
  3. One of the sons of Hebron, of the tribe of Judah. ( 1 Chronicles 2:43 ) It is doubtless the same as Beth-tappuah. (B.C. before 1450.)
