Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מִצְפָּה (“watch-tower,” “lofty place”), [Mizpah], pr.n.

(1) of a town of Gilead, Judges 10:17, 11:11, 34 Judges 11:34; Hosea 5:1 more fully, Judges 11:29, מִצְפֵּה־גִלְעָד. As to the origin of this place, see Genesis 31:49.

(2) of a town of the Benjamites, where the people were accustomed to assemble, Judges 21:1; 1 Samuel 7:5. It was afterwards fortified by Asa, to guard the frontiers against the kingdom of Israel (1 Kings 15:22; 2 Chronicles 16:6); and at length it was made the seat of the Chaldean governor, Jeremiah 40:6 comp. Nehemiah 3:7, 19. The same place is once written מִצְפֶּה (Joshua 18:26).
