smoking furnace, one of the places where "David himself and his men were wont to haunt" ( 1 Samuel 30:30 1 Samuel 30:31 ). It is probably identical with Ashan ( Joshua 15:42 ; 19:7 ), a Simeonite city in the Negeb, i.e., the south, belonging to Judah. The word ought, according to another reading, to be "Bor-ashan."
