tḗ - lā´im ( הטּלאים , ha - ṭelā'ı̄m "the young lambs"; ἐν Γαλγάλοις , en Galgálois ): The place where Saul "summoned the people, and numbered them" ( 1 Samuel 15:4 ) before his attack on Agag, king of the Amalekites. Some authorities read "Telam" for "Havilah" in verse 7 and also find this name in 1 Samuel 27:8 instead of מעולם , mē‛ōlām . In Septuagint and Josephus (Ant. , VI, vii, 2) Gilgal occurs instead of Telaim, on what ground is not known. Probably Telaim is identical with TELEM (which see), though the former may have been the name of a Bedouin tribe inhabiting the latter district. Compare Dhallām Arabs now found South of Tell el -Milḥ .
