GATH-HEPHER ( Joshua 19:13 [AV [Note: Authorized Version.] wrongly Gittah-hepher , which is simply the form of the name with He locale ], 2 Kings 14:25 , ‘wine press of the pit or well’). The home of the prophet Jonah. It lay on the border of Zebulun, and is mentioned with Japhia and Rimmon the modern Yâfâ and Rummâneh . Jerome, in the preface to his Com. on Jonah, speaks of Geth quae est in Opher (cf. Vulg. [Note: Vulgate.] 2 Kings 14:25 ), and places it 2 Roman miles from Sepphoris ( Seffûrieh ), on the road to Tiberias. This points to el-Meshhed , a village on a slight eminence N. of the Tiberias road, 1 / 2 mile W. of Kefr Kenna , where one of Jonah’s many reputed tombs is still pointed out.
