Chor-A'shan (Hebrews Kor-Ashan´ כּוֹראּעָשָׁן, smoking furnace; Sept. Βαρασάν v. r. Βωρασάν and even Βηρσαβεέ, i.e. Beer-sheba; Vulg. lacus Ashan; so that both appear to have read בּוֹראּ), one of the places (named between Hormah and Athach) in which "David and his men were wont to haunt," and to his I friends in which he sent presents of the plunder taken from the Amalekites who had robbed Ziklag (1Sa 30:30). The towns named in this catalogue are all south of Helron; and Chorashan, therefore, is probably identical with the simple ASHAN SEE ASHAN (q.v.) of Simeon (Jos 15:42; Jos 19:7).
