Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
TELAIM (‘the lambs’). The place at which Saul concentrated his forces, and numbered his fighting men before his campaign against the Amalekites ( 1 Samuel 15:4 ). The LXX [Note: Septuagint.] reads Gilgal for Telaim, and Josephus ( Ant. VI. vii. 2) also makes Gilgal the place of assembly. A more suitable locality for the place of assembly would, however, be in the Negeb, or South; and here lay Telem ( Joshua 15:24 ), with which Telaim is probably identical.
