(boh' han) Place name and personal name meaning, “thumb” or “big toe.” A place on the northern border of the tribal allotment of Judah called the “stone of Bohan,” “the son of Reuben” (Joshua 15:6 ). This was the southern border of the tribe of Benjamin (Joshua 18:17 ). Some Bible students see this as evidence that some part of the tribe of Reuben once lived west of the Jordan. Others see an otherwise unknown heroic deed of Bohan honored with a memorial boundary stone.
