GELILOTH (‘stone circles,’ Joshua 18:17 ). Identical with the Gilgal of Joshua 15:7 , and possibly with the Bath-gilgal of Nehemiah 12:29 . It was a place on the border of Benjamin and Judah near the Ascent of Adummim. This last was probably in the neighbourhood of Tal‘ at ed-dum , a hill near the so-called ‘Inn of the Good Samaritan’ on the carriage road to Jericho. The word gelîlôth occurs also in the Heb. in Joshua 13:2 ; Joshua 22:10-11 and Joel 3:4 , and is tr. [Note: translate or translation.] in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] either ‘borders’ or ‘coasts,’ RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘regions.’
