Netophah

Additional Links

Neto'phah. (distillation). A town, the name of which, occurs only in the catalogue of those, who returned with Zerubbabel from the captivity. Ezra 2:22; Nehemiah 7:26 1 Esdras 5:18. But, though not directly mentioned till so late a period, Netophah was really a much older place.

Two of David's guard, 1 Chronicles 17:13; 1 Chronicles 17:15, were Netophathites. The "villages of the Neophathites," were the residence of the Levites. 1 Chronicles 9:16. From another notice, we learn that the particular Levites, who inhabited these villages, were singers. Nehemiah 12:28. To judge from Nehemiah 7:26, the town was in the neighborhood of, or closely connected with, Bethlehem.
