Har'iph (Heb. Chariph', חָרַיŠ, autumal rain;Sept. Α᾿ρείμ, Α᾿ρίφ), the name apparently of two men.
1. An Israelite whose descendants (or possibly a place: whose inhabitants), to the number of 112, returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Ne 7:24). In Ezr 2:18, the name is written in the synonymous form JORAH.. B.C. ante 536. Perhaps identical with the HAREPH of 1Ch 2:51. SEE HARUPHITE.
2. One of the chief of the people who subscribed the covenant of fidelity to Jehovah with Nehemiah (Ne 10:19). B.C. cir. 410. Perhaps the name is here only a patronymic contraction for Ben-Hariph. SEE HARIM.
