a jawbone, a place in the tribe of Judah where Samson achieved a victory over the Philistines ( Judges 15:9 Judges 15:14 Judges 15:16 ), slaying a thousand of them with the jawbone of an ass. The words in 15:19 , "a hollow place that was in the jaw" (A.V.), should be, as in Revised Version, "the hollow place that is in Lehi."
