Quick Reference

Son of Carmi (1 Chron. 2: 7). After the destruction of Jericho (Josh. 6: 24) some of the booty reserved for the Lord was stolen by Achan; and when the Israelites suffered a reversal in failing to capture Ai, it was suspected that someone had flouted the ban. A primitive process of investigation turned up Achan, and he and his family were stoned to death (Josh. 7: 25).
