Easton's Bible Dictionary

Gallim:

heaps, (1Sa 25:44; Isa 10:30). The native place of Phalti, to whom Michal was given by Saul. It was probably in Benjamin, to the north of Jerusalem.

Gallim:

who heap up; who cover

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Gallim:

gal'-im (gallim), "heaps"): Probably two distinct places:

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

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

Written by E. W. G. Masterman

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Gallim:

(fountains.) This is given as the native place of the man to whom Michal, David's wife, was given (1 Samuel 25:44). There is no clue to the situation of the place. The name occurs again in the catalogue of places terrified at the approach of Sennacherib (Isaiah 10:30).
