te'-lem (Telem; Telem): A city in the Negeb "toward the border of Edom," belonging to Judah (Josh 15:24). In Septuagint of 2 Sam 3:12 Abner is said to send messengers to David at Thelam (Thailam); this would seem to be the same place and also to be identical with the Telaim and Telam of Saul (see TELAIM). It is probably the same as the Talmia of the Talmud (Neubauer, Geog. du Talmud, 121). The site has not been recovered.
