Gallim [EBD]

heaps, (1 Sam. 25:44; Isa. 10:30). The native place of Phalti, to whom Michal was given by Saul. It was probably in Benjamin, to the north of Jerusalem.

Gallim [NAVE]

GALLIM, a town, probably in tribe of Benjamin, 1 Sam. 25:44; Isa. 10:30.


(fountains). This is given as the native place of the man to whom Michal, David?s wife, was given. (1 Samuel 25:44) There is no clue to the situation of the place. The name occurs again in the catalogue of places terrified at the approach of Sennacherib. (Isaiah 10:30)


GALLIM - gal'-im (gallim), "heaps"): Probably two distinct places:

(1) A town mentioned among the 11 additional cities of Judah which are in the Septuagint appended to Josh 15:59, and have altogether disappeared from the Hebrew text. It occurs between Karem (`Ain Kairem) and Baither (Bettir); it is probably the large and flourishing village of Beit Jala, near Bethlehem.

(2) Gallim is mentioned in Isa 10:30; not far from Laishah and Anathoth and certainly North of Jerusalem. It was the home of Palti the son of Laish (1 Sam 25:44), and it is by many authorities identified with the Gilgal on the North border of Judah (Josh 15:7), the Geliloth of the parallel passage (Josh 18:17), and the Beth-gilgal of Neh 12:29.
