(5) Bochim.--(Comp. Genesis 35:8; Genesis 1:11.) It was like "the Jews' wailing-place" in modern Jerusalem.

They sacrificed there unto the Lord.--It is not necessary to infer from this that Bochim must have been near the sanctuary at Bethel, Shechem, or Shiloh. Not only did kings and prophets seem to be tacitly excepted from the general rule against offering sacrifice at any place except the chosen sanctuary, but also sacrifice was always freely offered at places where there had been any manifestation of the Divine Presence--Judges 6:20 (Gideon); Jdg. 22:19 (Manoah); 2Samuel 24:25 (David), &c. On the other hand, it is improbable that all Israel would have been assembled at some unknown place, or that the memory of such a spot should not have been preserved.

Verse 5. - They sacrificed. A clear intimation that they were near Shiloh, where the tabernacle was.
