Lahmi

LAHMI . The brother of Goliath the Gittite, slain by Elhanan the son of Jair ( 1 Chronicles 20:5 ). There is a discrepancy between this passage and the parallel passage in 2 Samuel 21:19 , where we read that ‘Elhanan [wh. see] the Bethlehemite slew Goliath the Gittite.’ If the text of Chronicles is the more correct, the designation Bethlehemite of Samuel is simply a corruption of the name Lahmi , but the converse might also be the case.
