Tappuah (2)

Tappuah The present Tuffah, which probably represents Beth-tappuah (Jos 15:53), is briefly described in the Memoirs to the Ordnance Survey (3:310). Beit-Ata, which we have conjectured to be the Tappuah of Jos 12:11; Jos 15:34, is copiously described, ibid. page 22 sq., 83; but Tristram suggests (Bible Places, page 48) for the latter Biblical site the present ArtuJ; which lies three and a half miles to the north-west of Beit- Atah, and one and a quarter miles south-east of Surah (Zorah). It is described in the above Memoirs (3:22) as "a small village on a low hill, with an open valley to the nwest. There is a pool in the valley, where the village obtains its water.Olive-trees occur around the place. "There do not seem to be any traces of antiquity. The third Tappuah, or that of-Ephraim (Jos 16:8; Jos 17:8), or Ein-tappuah, is conceded bv Tristram (ut sup. page 195) to be the modern Atuf, but to this Conder objects (Memoirs, 2:357) that there is no spring and no tombs, and that the names have but one letter in common. The place is "a mud village, built on an older site, and supplied by wells and cisterns" (ibid. page 227).
