ATS Bible Dictionary
Bahurim

A town of Benjamin, near Jerusalem, on the road to the Jordan. It is several times mentioned in the history of David, 2 Samuel 3:16; 16:5; 17:18.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Young men, a place east of Jerusalem (2 Samuel 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 Samuel 23:31; 1 Chronicles 11:33).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
BAHURIM

ba-hu'-rim bachurim; (Baoureim usually, but there are variants): A place in the territory of Benjamin which lay on an old road from Jerusalem to Jericho followed by David in his flight from Absalom (2 Samuel 15:32-16:5). It ran over the Mount of Olives and down the slopes to the East. The Talmud identifies it with Ale, math, the modern Almit, about a mile beyond `Anata, going from Jerusalem. If this identification is correct, Wady Farah may be the brook of water (2 Samuel 17:20). Here Paltiel was parted from his wife Miehal by Abner (2 Samuel 3:16). It was the home of Shimei, who ran along a ridge of the hill cursing and throwing stones at the fugitive king (2 Samuel 16:5 1 Kings 2:8). In Bahurim Jonathan and Ahimaaz, the native messengers of David, were concealed in a well by a loyal woman (2 Samuel 17:18). Azmaveth, one of David's heroes, was a of Bahurim. In 2 Samuel 23:31 we should read, as in 1 Chronicles 11:33,
