zē´fı̄ , zē´fō ( צפי , cephı̄ , perhaps "gaze," or "gazing," in 1 Chronicles 1:36; צפו , cephō , the same meaning in Genesis 36:11 , Genesis 36:15 ): A duke of Edom. Septuagint has Σωφάρ , Sōphár , which Skinner (Gen , 431) says may be the original of Job's kind friend. In Genesis 36:43 the Septuagint has Ζαφωεί , Zaphōeı́ (=צפו , cephō , i.e. Zepho), for Iram. Skinner holds it probable that the two names, Zepho and Iram, were in the original text, thus making the number 12 (compare Lagarde, Septuagint-Stud ., II, 10, 1. 178; 37, 1. 270; Nestle, Margin., 12). Lucian has Σωφάρ , Sōphár , in Genesis 36:11 , Genesis 36:15; Σεπφουή , Sepphouḗ , in 1 Chronicles 1:37 , and Σαφωίν , Saphōı́n , in Genesis 36:43 .
