Smith's Bible Dictionary
Oph'ni. (mouldy). A town of Benjamin, mentioned in Joshua 18:24, the same as the Gophna, of Josephus; a place which, at the time of Vespasian's invasion, was apparently so important as to be second only to Jerusalem. It still survives in the modern Jifna or Jufna, 23 miles northwest of Bethel.
