General Location Notes
Precise Coordinates NotesMcKinny, Historical Geography of the Administrative Division of Judah (2014) (page 125-126) suggests that this site may be identical with Mezad Refed or Mezudat Hatirah; since the latter is at the appropriate coordinates, Iā€™m using it here; if you georeference the second Musil Arabia Petraea map (Musil, Arabia Petraea Map (1907) or a smaller version at Wikimedia Commons) on which "ez Zejfe" appears, you end up with a point close to here (30.990,34.979) as well (where the line intersection to the northeast is 31.0,35.0)
