(KJV) or CALEB-EPHRATHAH (modern translations) (Caleb Ephrtah) Place where Hezron, Caleb's father died (1 Chronicles 2:24 ). The RSV (not NRSV) follows a slight change of Hebrew text to make Ephrathah the wife of Hezron whom Caleb took after his father's death. Ephrathah was another name for Bethlehem. See Bethlehem; Ephrathah . Otherwise, Caleb-ephrathah is unknown.
