git´ā̇ -im ( גּתּים , gittayim ): The town to which the Beerothites tied, and where they lived as gērı̄m , or protected strangers (2 Samuel 4:3 ). The place need not have been beyond the boundaries of Benjamin, so it may be identical with Gittaim of Nehemiah 11:33 , which was occupied by Benjamites after the exile. It is named with Hazor and Ramah; but so far the site has not been discovered.
