Beth-Le-Aphrah

See also Beth Ophrah

BETH-LE-APHRAH bĕth’ lĭ ăf’ rə (בֵּ֣ית לְעַפְרָ֔ה, LXX tr. it as, house of dust), KJV HOUSE OF APHRAH. An unidentified town mentioned in Micah 1:10. J. Simons suggests Wadi el Ghafr between ed-Daweimeh and Tell ed-Duweir. Since the expression is clearly a play on words, it may be an allusion to another city such as Ophrah or Bethel.
