BORASHANbôr ā’ shən (בּﯴר־עָשָׁ֖ן, Gr. βωρασαν, meaning smoking pit). Occurs only once in this form (1 Sam 30:30), where it refers to a city in the southwestern part of Judah. It is mentioned among the places where David and his men roamed prior to his becoming king. It may possibly be the same as Ashan, a city in the Shephelah originally assigned to the tribe of Simeon (Josh 19:7; 1 Chron 4:32).
