Caleb-Ephrathah

CALEB-EPHRATHAH

ka'-leb ef'-ra-tha, -ef'-ra-ta (the King James Version Caleb-ephratah, kalebh 'ephrathah):

The place where Hezron died (1 Chronicles 2:24). Many scholars, however, read with the Septuagint "after the death of Hezron, Caleb came unto Ephrath, the wife of Hezron, his father." The name does not occur elsewhere, and none resembling it has been recovered.
