Bean, Children of

Be'an, Children Of (υἱοὶ Βαιάν; Josephus, υἱοὶ τοῦ Βαάνου, Ant. 12, 8, 1), a tribe apparently of predatory Bedouin habits, retreating into "towers" (πύργους) when not plundering, and who were destroyed by Judas Maccabaeus (1 Mac. 5:4). The name has been supposed to be identical with BEON (Nu 32:2); but this is a mere conjecture, as it is very difficult to tell from the context whether the residence of this people was on the east or west of Jordan.
