Easton's Bible Dictionary

Geliloth:

circles; regions, a place in the border of Benjamin (Jos 18:17); called Gilgal in Jos 15:7.

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Geliloth:

rolling, wheel, heap

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Geliloth:

ge-li'-loth (geliloth): This word is used for "districts" or "circuits" perhaps indicating the different parts subject to the several lords of the Philistines (Jos 13:2, the King James Version "borders," the Revised Version (British and American) "regions"); for the quarter of the Jordan valley where the eastern tribes built the altar of Ed (Jos 22:10 f; the King James Version "border of," the Revised Version (British and American) "region about," Jordan); and apparently, for the whole of Philistia (Joe 3:4, the King James Version "coasts of Palestine," the Revised Version (British and American) "regions of Philistia"). But in Jos 18:17, it is clearly used as a place-name. Geliloth lay on the boundary between Judah and Benjamin which passed En-shemesh (probably ‘Ain el-Chod, about 2 miles East of Jerusalem), "and went out to Geliloth, which is over against the ascent of Adummim." From this point it "went down" toward the plain. The place cannot therefore be identified with Gilgal in the Jordan valley. Some point on the road leading from Jericho to Tal‘at ed-Dumm, about 6 miles from Jerusalem, was probably intended, but no identification is possible.

Written by W. Ewing

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Geliloth:

(circuit) a place named among the marks of the south boundary line of the tribe of Benjamin (Joshua 18:17). The name Geliloth never occurs again in this locality, and it therefore seems probable that Gilgal is the right reading.
