ZIPHITES (zĭf'īts, Heb. zîphî). The inhabitants of Ziph, whether the name designated the town or the wilderness surrounding it (1Sam.23.14-1Sam.23.23; 1Sam.26.1-1Sam.26.5). Twice, apparently, David hid in their vicinity when being pursued by King Saul. Each time the Ziphites, though of David’s tribe, told Saul of his location. They seemed to think it better to support the reigning king than to be kind to David, whom they considered a rebel.
