ADULLAM . A city in the Shephelah, assigned to Judah; named between Jarmuth and Socoh ( Joshua 15:35 etc.). It is probably the modern ‘ Id el-Ma ’, about 8 miles N.W. of Beit Jibrîn . Rehoboam fortified it ( 2 Chronicles 11:7 ), and the children of Judah returned to it after the captivity ( Nehemiah 11:30 ). The Cave of Adullam, the refuge of David ( 1 Samuel 22:1 etc.), must have been one of those in the adjoining valley. Adullamite ( Genesis 38:1 etc.) = an inhabitant of Adullam.
