ke-fi'-ra (ha-kephirah; Codex Vaticanus, Kapheira (Jos 9:1-27); Codex Alexandrinus has Chepheira, Codex Vaticanus has kai Pheira (Jos 18:1-28)): One of the cities of the Hivites who by guile made alliance with Israel (Jos 9:17). It was in the lot of Benjamin (Jos 18:26), and was reoccupied after the return from Babylon (Ezr 2:25; Ne 7:29). It is represented by the modern Kefireh, to the Southwest of Gibeon, and North of Karyat el-`Anab. It stands on high ground, with many ancient remains.
