Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible [1]

HELEPH . A town on the border of Naphtali (  Joshua 19:33 ). Although mentioned in the Talmud ( Megillah , l. 1, Heleph has not been identified.

Smith's Bible Dictionary [2]

He'leph. (Exchange). The place from which the boundary of the tribe of Naphtali started.  Joshua 19:33.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary [3]

The place from which Naphtali's boundary commenced ( Joshua 19:33). Now the ancient site is called Beitlif (Van de Velde).

Morrish Bible Dictionary [4]

Border town of Naphtali.  Joshua 19:33 . Identified with Beit Lif , 33 8' N, 35 20' E .

Holman Bible Dictionary [5]

 Joshua 19:33

Easton's Bible Dictionary [6]

 Joshua 19:33

Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature [7]

(Heb. Che'leph, חֶלֶ , an Exchange, As in  Numbers 18:21;  Numbers 18:31; Sept. joins' with prefixed preposition Μεέλεφ ; Vulg. Heleph), a city mentioned apparently as the starting-point of the northern border of Naphtali, beginning at the west ( Joshua 19:33). Van de Velde thinks it may be the same with Beit-Lf, a village with ancient remains (comp. Robinson, Later Researches, p. 61, 62), nearly due east of the Ras Abyad, and west of Kades, on the S. edge of a very marked ravine (wady el-Ayun), which probably formed part of the boundary between Naphtali and Asher (Van de Velde, Syria, 1 233); nor is the objection of Keil (Comment. ad loc.), that the position is represented as being at the intersection of the northern border of Palestine with the eastern line of Asher, altogether correct, since several of the associated names are likewise somewhat interior.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [8]

hē´lef ( חלף , ḥeleph ): A place on the southern border of Naphtali (  Joshua 19:33 ); unidentified.
