Bochim

Meaning: weepers

a place where the angel of the Lord reproved the Israelites for entering into a league with the people of the land.

This caused them bitterly to weep, and hence the name of the place (Judg. 2:1, 5). It lay probably at the head of one of the valleys between Gilgal and Shiloh.
