(Heb. Shophan', ] שׁוֹפָ , prob. i.q. Shaphan ; Sept. Σοφάρ ; Samar. שפי ם ; Vulg. Sophar ) , given in the A.V. as one of the fortified towns on the east of Jordan which were taken possession of and rebuilt by the tribe of Gad ( Numbers 32:35); but probably a mere affix (significant, according to some, of Bareness ) to the second Atroth, to distinguish it from the former one, not an independent place. (See Ataroth).
