Hariph
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
Ancestor (or head) of a family that returned to Judah from exile with Zerubbabel (Neh 7:24). The leader of the family was also one of the men who signed the written agreement to keep the law during the time of Ezra and Nehemiah (Neh 10:19). Two references to this clan use the name “Hariph” (Neh 7:24; Neh 10:19), and it appears as Αριφος (Ariphos)—a Greek transliteration of Hariph—in 1 Esdras 5:16. The list of the families of returning exiles found in Ezra 2, however, gives this clan’s name as Jorah (יוֹרָה‎, yorah; Ezra 2:18).
