Bochim

Bochim [N] [H] [S]

weepers, a place where the angel of the Lord reproved the Israelites for entering into a league with the people of the land. This caused them bitterly to weep, and hence the name of the place ( Judges 2:1 Judges 2:5 ). It lay probably at the head of one of the valleys between Gilgal and Shiloh.

BOCHIM

bo'-kim (ha-bokhim):

A place on the mountain West of Gilgal said to have been so named (literally "the weepers") because Israel wept there at the remonstrance of the angel (Judges 2:1,5). No name resembling this has been discovered. Given on the occasion mentioned, it may not have endured. Many, following Septuagint, identify it with Bethel.
