HELAM

he'-lam (chelam, 2 Sam 10:16 f; in 16:17 with the he of locale; Septuagint Hailam): A place near which David is said to have defeated the Aramean world under Hadarezer (2 Sam 10:16 ff). Its site is unknown. Cornill and others introduce it into the text of Ezek 47:16 from the Septuagint Heliam). This would place it between the territories of Damascus and Hamath, which is not unreasonable. Some scholars identify it with Aleppo, which seems too far north.
