Holman Bible Dictionary
(behth-ray' fuh) Place name meaning, “house of a giant.” 1 Chronicles 4:12
says the otherwise unknown Eshton “became the father of Beth-rapha” (NAS). This apparently describes the beginning of a clan who lived at the town whose name is not known. The name could have distant relationships to the Rephaim ( Deuteronomy 3:11
), though the Bible nowhere makes such relationships.
