("youths".) E. of Jerusalem, the abode, of Shimei, son of Gera (2 Samuel 16:5; 2 Samuel 17:18; 1 Kings 2:8). When David left the summit of Olivet behind and was descending the eastern slopes to the Jordan valley below, in his flight front Absalom, Shimei came forth from Bahurim and ran along the side ("rib") of the hill, abusing David and flinging stones and dust, in a manner common in the East in the case of fallen greatness. Bahurim was evidently off the main road. Here, in the court of a house, Jonathan and Ahimaaz lay hidden under the well's covering upon which grain was spread. Here Phaltiel parted with his wife Michal, when she was claimed by David (2 Samuel 3:16). Azmaveth, one of David's valiant men, was a Baharumite (1 Chronicles 11:33), or Barhumite (2 Samuel 23:31). Ganneau identifies with Fakhoury, a locality between Olivet, Siloam, Bethany, and Abou Dis.
