Strong's #5614 - סְפָרַד
Sepharad = “separated”
1) a place where Israelites were exiled; site unknown
סְפָרַד Obadiah 1:20 [Sepharad], pr.n. of a country elsewhere unknown, whither the exiles of Israel were carried away; according to the Vulg. Bosphorus; according to the Syr., Ch., and the Hebrew writers Spain, which is clearly incorrect. Others suppose Sipphara, but this apparently would be rather סְפַרְוַיִם.
