Ha'ruphite (Heb. Charuphi', חֲרוּפַי,with the art.; for which the Masoretic margin more correctly reads חֲרַיפַּי, Hariphite; Sept. Α᾿ρουφί v.r. Χαριφιήλ, Vulg. Haruphites), an epithet of Shephatiah, one of the brave adventurers who joined David at Ziklag (1Ch 12:5); so called, probably, as being a native of HARIPH. "Josabad the Gederathite," of the preceding verse, was probably from the same place; and as he was so called from being a resident of Gedor (q.v.), it would seen that the epithet "Haruphite" was an equivalent one, as a descendant from Hareph (q.v.), the founder of Geder (1Ch 2:51).
