SHEPHAM

she'-fam (shepham; Sepphamar):

A place, probably a hill town, on the ideal eastern boundary of Israel, named in Numbers 34:10, but omitted in Ezekiel 47:15-18. It lay between Hazar-enan and Harbel (Massoretic Text: "Hariblah"), which must have been in the neighborhood of Hermon. The word means a "naked" place, and doubtless indicates one of the barer midway ridges of Anti-Lebanon. It was probably the native place of Zabdi the Shiphmite, who was David's chief vine-gardener (1 Chronicles 27:27).
