("heap of witness".) The Aramaic or Chaldee name given by the Syrian Laban to the stone heap commemorating his compact with Jacob, whereon they ate together. Galeed, "a witness heap," the Hebrew name given by Jacob.(See GALEED.) The whole region was already "Gilead," i.e. hard rocky region, and Jacob made the word by a slight change to mark a crisis in his history (Genesis 31:44-55).
