Netophah

Additional Links
(nih toh' fuh) Name meaning, “dropping.” A village and surrounding district in the hill country of Judah (2 Samuel 23:28-29; 1 Chronicles 11:30; 1 Chronicles 27:13; Nehemiah 7:26 ). Netophah is frequently associated with Bethlehem, suggesting a site near that town. The inference finds added support in the inclusion of two Netophites in David's elite circle of warriors. The site is most likely khirbet Bedd Faluh about three and a half miles southeast of Bethlehem. The nearby spring, Ain en-Natuf, preserves the name.
