boundary of blood, a place in the tribe of Judah where the Philistines encamped when David fought with Goliath ( 1 Samuel 17:1 ). It was probably so called as having been the scene of frequent sanguinary conflicts between Israel and the Philistines. It is called Pas-dammim ( 1 Chronicles 11:13 ). It has been identified with the modern Beit Fased, i.e., "house of bleeding", near Shochoh (q.v.).
