SIPHMOTH sĭf’ mŏth (שִֽׂפְמֹ֖ות). One of the cities of Judah with which David shared the spoils of Ziklag (1 Sam 30:28). It was visited by David during the time in which he was a fugitive from King Saul. Its identification is uncertain.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

sif’-moth, sif’-moth (siphmoth (Ginsburg), shiphamoth (Baer); Saphei): One of the cities to which David sent presents from Ziklag (1Sa 30:28). It occurs between Aroer and Eshtemoa, so it must have been somewhere in Southern Judah. The site has not been recovered. Zabdi the Shiphmite (1Ch 27:27) may quite probably have been a native of this place.
