Caphar

Additional Links

Caphar. One of the numerous words employed in the Bible to denote a village or collection of dwellings smaller than a city (Ir). Mr. Stanley proposes to render it as "hamlet." In names of places, it occurs in Chephar-he-Ammonai, Chephirah, Caphar-salama. To us, its chief interest arises from its forming a part of the name of Capernaum, that is, Capharnahum.
