BAEAN

be'-an huioi Baian; the King James Version Bean; 1 Macc 5:4: A tribe mentioned only because of its malignant hatred of the Jews. Its aggressive hostility against their religion and the rebuilding of their sanctuary duplicated the conspiracy of Sanballat and his confederates against the restoration of Jerusalem and the temple in the days of Nehemiah (compare Neh 4:7,8). Utterly exterminated by Judas Maccabeus who burned alive, in towers, many of the imprisoned people.
See MAON.
