Bahurim

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
Young men, a place east of Jerusalem (2 Samuel 3:16 ; 19:16 ), on the road to the Jordan valley. Here Shimei resided, who poured forth vile abuse against David, and flung dust and stones at him and his party when they were making their way down the eastern slopes of Olivet toward Jordan (16:5); and here Jonathan and Ahimaaz hid themselves (17:18).

With the exception of Shimei, Azmaveth, one of David's heroes, is the only other native of the place who is mentioned (2 Samuel 23:31 ; 1 Chronicles 11:33 ).
