Ephra-in [N]

(hamlet ), a city of Israel which Judah captured from Jeroboam. ( 2 Chronicles 13:19 ) It has been conjectured that this Ephrain or Ephron is identical with the Ephraim by which Absaloms sheep-farm of Baal-hazor was situated; with the city called Ephraim near the wilderness in which our Lord lived for some time; and with Ophrah, a city of Benjamin, apparently not far from Bethel. But nothing more than conjecture can be arrived at on these points.

[N] indicates this entry was also found in Nave's Topical Bible
