(af' ruh) KJV interpretation of place name in Micah 1:10 , also called Beth Ophrah (NIV) or Beth-le-aphrah (RSV; NAS); or Beth Leaphrah (TEV). The longer name used in modern translations means “house of dust” and is used to make a wordplay by Micah, the meaning of the name being more important than the actual city. The city has not been located. It may be modern tel et-Taijibe near Hebron.
