of´nı̄ ( העפני , hā - ‛ophnı̄ ; Ἀφνή , Aphnḗ ): A place in the territory of Benjamin ( Joshua 18:24 ). The modern Jifneh , in a fine vale West of the road to Nāblus and 2 1/2 miles Northwest of Bethel, might suit as to position; but the change in the initial letter from ‛ain to jı̄m is not easy. This is the Gophna of the rabbis (compare Josephus, Jewish Wars , III, iii, 5).
