Ziph was of the tribe of Judah in the south, on the borders of Eleutheropolis, as Jerom says F4 and was eight miles from Hebron to the east; and in his time a village was shown, where David was hid; but that Ziph seems to be in another part of this tribe near Carmel, and from whence a wilderness had its name; see ( Joshua 15:55 ) ( 1 Samuel 23:14 ) ;
is supposed to be the same with Telaim, ( 1 Samuel 15:4 ) ;
of this city we read nowhere else.
