Bochim

(boh' chihm) Place name meaning, “weepers.” Place where angel of God announced judgment on Israel at beginning of the period of Judges because they had not destroyed pagan altars but had made covenant treaties with the native inhabitants. Thus the people cried and named the place Bochim (Judges 2:1-5 ). It may have been between Bethel and Gilgal. An oak of weeping near Bethel was the burial place of Deborah, Rebekah's nurse (Genesis 35:8 ). See Allon-bachuth.
