(ay' chuhn) or ACHAR (1Chron. 1 Corinthians 2:7 ). In Joshua 7:1 , a Judahite whose theft of a portion of the spoil from Jericho brought divine displeasure and military defeat on the Israelite army. After the battle of Ai, the Lord told Joshua the reason for Israel's defeat was that the ban concerning the spoil of Jericho had been violated (Joshua 7:11 ). Achan was discovered to be the guilty party, and he and his family were stoned to death (Joshua 7:25 ). See Ai; Joshua .
