  Bahurim 
  young  men,  a  place  east  of  Jerusalem  (2  Sam.  3:16;  19:16),  on 
  the  road  to  the  Jordan  valley.  Here  Shimei  resided,  who  poured 
  forth  vile  abuse  against  David,  and  flung  dust  and  stones  at  him 
  and  his  party  when  they  were  making  their  way  down  the  eastern 
  slopes  of  Olivet  toward  Jordan  (16:5);  and  here  Jonathan  and 
  Ahimaaz  hid  themselves  (17:18). 
 
  With  the  exception  of  Shimei,  Azmaveth,  one  of  David's  heroes, 
  is  the  only  other  native  of  the  place  who  is  mentioned  (2  Sam. 
  23:31;  1  Chr.  11:33).
