("bush".) The southern of the two isolated rocks in the passage of Michmash, mentioned in Jonathan's enterprise (1 Samuel 14:4; 1 Samuel 14:8), the nearer of the two to Geba. He made his way across from Geba of Benjamin to the Philistine garrison at Michmash over Seneh and Bozez, the rocks intervening. Seneh was named from the growth of thorn brushes upon it. The ridge between the two valleys (still called Suweineh and Buweizeh) has two steep sides, one facing the S. toward Geba (Seneh), the other facing the N. toward Michmash (Bozez). In going from Geba to Michmash, instead of going round by the passage of Michmash where the two valleys unite, Jonathan went directly across the ridge over the two rocks which lay between the passages or valleys.
