Bahurim

BAHURIM (ba-hū'rĭm, Heb. bahurîm). A place in Benjamin on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho, not far from the [[Mount of Olives]]. It is frequently mentioned in the history of David. It was the home of Shimei, who cursed David on his flight from Absalom (2Sam.16.5; 2Sam.19.16; 1Kgs.2.8). Jonathan and Ahimaaz hid in a well there when acting as David’s spies (2Sam.17.18).
