gal´im ( גּלים , gallı̄m ), "heaps"): Probably two distinct places:

(1) A town mentioned among the 11 additional cities of Judah which are in the Septuagint appended to Joshua 15:59 , and have altogether disappeared from the Hebrew text. It occurs between Karem (‛Ain Kairem ) and Baither (Bettı̂r ); it is probably the large and flourishing village of Beit Jāla , near Bethlehem.

(2) Gallim is mentioned in Isaiah 10:30 ; not far from Laishah and Anathoth and certainly North of Jerusalem. It was the home of Palti the son of Laish (1 Samuel 25:44 ), and it is by many authorities identified with the Gilgal on the North border of Judah (Joshua 15:7 ), the Gelı̄lōth of the parallel passage (Joshua 18:17 ), and the Beth-gilgal of Nehemiah 12:29 .
