BETH-LE-APHRAH (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ‘house of Aphrah’). The name of a town apparently in Phil. territory, whose site is quite unknown ( Micah 1:10 ). In the call ‘at Beth-le-Aphrah roll thyself in the dust,’ there is a double play upon words, ‘Aphrah containing a punning allusion to ‘aphar (dust), and hithpallashi (roll thyself) to Pelishti (Philistine).
