 הֲלֹם adverb of place, hither (Arabic hither!) — Exodus 3:5 אַלתִּֿקְרַב הֲלֹם approach not hither, Judges 18:3; Judges 20:7; 1 Samuel 10:22; 1 Samuel 14:16 and lo, the camp melted away וַיֵּלֶךְ וַהֲלֹם read with ᵐ5 (ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν) Th We Dr הֲלֹם וַהֲלֹם hither and thither i.e. in different directions (compare הֵנָּה וָהֵנָּה Joshua 8:20), Joshua 8:36; Joshua 8:38; Ruth 2:14; עַד הֲלֹם figurative hitherto, thus far (i.e. to this point of dignity and greatness) 2 Samuel 7:18 (= 1 Chronicles 17:16). Psalm 73:10, if text be sound, הֲלֹם must mean thither (that Isaiah , after the persons described Psalm 73:3); but such sense questionable; read probably with Houb La for ישיב עמו הלם, יַשְׂבִּעֵמוֺלָ֑חֶם satisfies them with bread: compare Che Hup Now. Genesis 16:13 = here; but here also text is dubious: v Di. Judges 14:15 read הֲלֹם for הֲלֹא: see הֲ

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

הֲלֹם adv. of place.

(1)  hither, Exodus 3:5; Judges 18:3; 1 Samuel 10:22 עַד־הֲלֹם hitherto. 2 Samuel 7:18. To this answers the Arab. هَلُمَّ (not هَلُّمَ, as given in the former editions and by Winer) come hither, which is inflected like an imperative; whence the fem. هَلُمِّى Perhaps the Hebrew word also, was originally an imperative signifying come hither; from הָלַם to strike the ground with one’s foot (comp. פָּעַם). As to the sense, comp. also Gr. δεῦρο, δευρί, pl. δεῦτε.

(2) here, Genesis 16:13. [In Thes. this word is said to mean pr. a stroke of the foot on the ground, as an indication whence one has come.]
