"Clift" is an obsolete form of cleft, found in the King James Version Exodus 33:22 Isaiah 57:5, but not in the Revised Version (British and American). "Cliff," an abrupt, precipitous, towering rock, is not in the Revised Version (British and American), but is found in the King James Version 2 Chronicles 20:16, the Revised Version (British and American) "ascent," Job 30:6.
