(Heb. Botsets', בּוֹצֵוֹ , shining, according to Gesenius, but height according to First; Sept. Βωσής v. r. Βασές), the name of one of the two " sharp rocks" (Heb. "teeth of the cliff") "between the passages" by which Jonathan entered the Philistine garrison, apparently a crag on the north side of the ravine between Michmash and Gibeah (1 Samuel 14:4-5). Robinson noticed two hills of blunt conical form in the bottom of Wady Suweinit, just below Mukmas (Researches, ii, 116, also new ed. 3:289), which are doubtless those referred to, although Stanley could not make them out (Palest. p. 205, note).
