(Heb. Chali'. חֵלי, necklace; Sept. Ἀλί v.r. Α῾λέφ and Ο᾿ολει ). a town on the border of the tribe of Asher, mentioned between Helkath and Beten (Joshua 19:25). Schwarz thinks it may be the Chalon (Cyamoion) of Judith 7:3, opposite Esdraelon, and therefore near the range of Carmel (Palest. p. 191); but the reading of that passage is doubtful (see Arnald, Comment. ad loc.), and such an identification would place Hali far remote from the associated localities, which seem to indicate a position on the eastern boundary, at some distance from its northern extremity. Accordingly Van de Velde suggests (Memoir, p. 318) that "perhaps the site of this city may be recognized in that of Al a, a place where the rock- hewn foundations of a large city are seen, on the south-east side of the village of M'alia, rather more than five hours north-east of Akka; the tell of M'alia would seem to have formed the acropolis of the ancient city."
