hē´lam ( חילם , ḥēlām , 2 Samuel 10:16 f; in 2 Samuel 16:17 with the he of locale ; Septuagint Ἁιλάμ , Hailám ): A place near which David is said to have defeated the Aramean world under Hadarezer (2 Samuel 10:16 ). Its site is unknown. Cornill and others introduce it into the text of Ezekiel 47:16 (from the Septuagint Ἡλιάμ , Hḗliám ). This would place it between the territories of Damascus and Hamath, which is not unreasonable. Some scholars identify it with Aleppo, which seems too far north.
