(Heb. Beyth hag-Gilgal', בֵּית הִגִּלְגָּל, house of the Gilgal; Sept. omits, but some copies have Βαθγαλγάλ v. r. Βηθαγγαλγάλ ), a place from which the inhabitants gathered to Jerusalem for the purpose of celebrating the rebuilding of the walls on the return from Babylon (Nehemiah 12:29, where the name is translated "house of Gilgal);" doubtless the same elsewhere called simply GILGAL (See GILGAL) (q.v.), probably that near Bethel (2 Kings 2:2).
