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