Ephraim, Mount

Additional Links
(הר אפרים , har'ephrayim ): Means that part of the mountain which fell to Ephraim (Joshua 19:50 , etc.). The natives speak today of Jebel Nāblus , Jebel Ṣafed , etc., meaning that section of the central range which is subject to each city. It is better therefore to retain the rendering of the King James Version, and not to read with the Revised Version (British and American) "hill-country of Ephraim.»
