Beth-leaph'rah (Heb. Beyth le-Aphrah', לעִפרָה בֵּית, house [to, i.e.] of the fawn; Sept. and Vulg. falsely translate οϊvκος κατὰ γέλωτα ὑμῶν; domus pulveris; Auth. Vers. "'house of Aphrah"), a place named (only in Mic 1:10, where there is evidently a play upon the word as if for עָפָר, dust) in connection with other places of the Philistine coast (e.g. Gath, Accho ['weep ye"], Saphir, etc.), and not to be confounded (as by Henderson, in loc., after Gesenius and Winer) with the Benjamite Ophrah (Jos 18:23), but probably identical with the present village Beit-Affia, 6 miles south-east of Ashdod (Robinson's Researches, 2, 369 note; Van de Velde, Map).
