|Jaredite GN||1.||A hill (Ether 7:9)|
|Biblical PN||2.||Son of JOSEPH (2 Nephi 17:2, 5, 8, 9, 17 = Isaiah 7:2, 5, 8, 9, 17; 19:9, 21 (x2) = Isaiah 9:9, 21; 21:13 (x3) = Isaiah 11:13)|
EPHRAIM is cited in the Book of Mormon several times, once as the name of a JAREDITE hill, the remaining times as the name of the biblical son of JOSEPH in the ISAIAH passages of the Book of Mormon but is not otherwise used as a personal name.
The place name EPHRAIM may be a NEPHITE substitute for, or equivalent of, the JAREDITE name. (JAT) EPHRAIM may possibly derive from the HEBREW root *prh and have the meaning "grainland, pasture-land."
