CALEB EPHRATHAH (kā'lĕb ĕf'ra-ta). Named in 1Chr.2.24 as the place where Hezron died. The Hebrew and LXX texts differ here, and many scholars prefer the LXX reading, “after the death of Hezron, Caleb came unto Ephrath, the wife of Hezron, his father.” When a son took his father’s wife, it signified that he was claiming his father’s possessions.

ef’-ra-tha, -ef’-ra-ta (the King James Version Caleb-ephratah, kalebh ’ephrathah): The place where Hezron died (1Ch 2:24). Many scholars, however, read with the Septuagint "after the death of Hezron, Caleb came unto Ephrath, the wife of Hezron, his father." The name does not occur elsewhere, and none resembling it has been recovered.
