    Tappuah ( Tăp'Pu-Ah or Tap-Pû'Ah ), Apple Region. 1. A town in the plain country of Judah.  Joshua 15:34. 2. A city on the border of Ephraim and Manasseh; the city belonged to Ephraim, the land or district named from it to Manasseh.  Joshua 16:8;  Joshua 17:8. This was no doubt identical with En-tappuah. It is not certain which of these two places is intended in  Joshua 12:17.

    Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible [4]

    TAPPUAH . 1. A ‘son’ of Hebron (  1 Chronicles 2:43 ). Probably the name is that of a town in the Shephçlah (  Joshua 15:34 . It was probably to the N. of Wâdy es-Sunt , but the site has not been recovered. 2. See En-tappuah. 3. One of the towns W. of Jordan whose kings Joshua smote (  Joshua 12:17 ). It was perhaps the same place as No. 2 above; but this is by no means certain. See also Tiphsah and Tephon.

    [some Tappu'ah] (Heb. Tappu'ach, תִּפּוּח [in  1 Chronicles 2:43, תִּפְּח , an Apple, as often; Sept. Τάφου , Ταφούτ , Θαφέθ , Θαφφού , etc., and twice [ Joshua 15:34;  Joshua 17:8] omits; Vulg. Taphucu), the name of a man and also of two places in Palestine. (See Apple).

    1.' Second named of the four sons of Hebron of the lineage of Caleb (1 Chronicles 2, 43); not to be confounded with either of the following (see Keil, ad loc.). B.C. ante 1618.

    2. A town in the lowland district of Judah, mentioned between Engannim and Enam ( Joshua 15:34), in the group situated in the N.W. corner (see Keil, Ad Loc.); differs from the Beth tappuah (q.v.) of  Joshua 15:53, but probably the same with the royal city of the Canaanites ( Joshua 12:17), conquered by the Israelites (see Keil, Ad Loc.). It is perhaps the present Beita Tab, an important place on a conspicuous hill, about half-way from Jerusalem to Beit-Jebrin. It contains about 600 or 700 inhabitants, is built of stone, and has a ruined tower or castle (Robinson, Bibl. Res. 2, 13). This is apparently the place meant by Schwarz (Palest. p. 102) by "the village Beth-Tapa, five English miles N.W. [ten N.E.] of Beit-Jibrin."

    3. A town in the tribe of Ephraim, near the border of Manasseh, in which latter the adjacent territory ("land of Tappuah") lay ( Joshua 16:8;  Joshua 17:8); probably containing a fine spring, and hence called ( Joshua 17:7) EN-TAPPUAR (See En-Tappuar) (q.v.). It is no doubt, as suggested by Van de Velde (Memoir, p. 351), although this is disputed by Keil (Comment. ad loc.), the same as the present Atuf, a deserted village about four hours N.E. by E. of Nablis, with traces of antiquity and ancient wells of excellent water. Schwarz also states that "at the present day the Arabs call the country between Nablds and the Jordan Balad-tapuach, as probably the town of this name was formerly in it" (Palest. p. 89). (See Tribe).

    Kitto's Popular Cyclopedia of Biblial Literature [8]

    Tap´puah, or Beth-Tappuah

    A city in the tribe of Judah, not far from Hebron . Robinson identifies it with an old village, called Teffuh, which he found upon the hills north-west of Hebron.

    Another Tappuah lay in the plain of Judah, apparently in the vicinity of Zanoah, Jarmuth, Socoh, etc. : which of these was the place conquered by Joshua is not very clear (; comp. 10:6).

    Another place of the same name occurs on the confines of Ephraim and Manasseh .

    And in , a man of this name appears.
