BAHURIM . The place where Paltiel, son of Laish, was ordered to relinquish Michal ( 2 Samuel 3:16 ); where Shimei dwelt, who cursed David in his flight ( 2 Samuel 16:5 ); where Ahimaaz and Jonathan hid in the well from Absalom ( 2 Samuel 17:18-19 ); and the home of Azmaveth, one of David’s mighty men ( 1Ch 11:33 , 2 Samuel 23:31 , where Barhumite is written for Baharumite ). It was in the tribe of Benjamin (cf. the passages relating to Shimei),’ and the account of David’s flight, which supplies the only topographical indications, accords with the traditional identification with Almit , N.E. from the Mount of Olives, and about a mile beyond ‘Anata (Anathoth) from Jerusalem.

R. A. S. Macalister.
