ALEMA

al'-e-ma (Alemois):

A town in Gilead, mentioned once only (1 Macc 5:26), besieged by the nations under Timotheus, together with Bosor and other cities; and probably relieved along with these cities by Judas Maccabeus, although no mention is made of Alema's relief. The name occurs the one time as dative plural.
