    Talmai in Easton's Bible Dictionary abounding in furrows. (1.) One of the Anakim of Hebron, who were slain by the men of Judah under Caleb (Num. 13:22; Josh. 15:14; Judg. 1:10). (2.) A king of Geshur, to whom Absalom fled after he had put Amnon to death (2 Sam. 3:3; 13:37). His daughter, Maachah, was one of David's wives, and the mother of Absalom (1 Chr. 3:2).

    Talmai in Fausset's Bible Dictionary ("furrows"). 1. One of the three giant sons of Anak slain at Hebron or Kirjath Arba (their dwelling place at the time of the spies, Numbers 13:22) by the men of Judah under Caleb (Judges 1:10; Joshua 15:14). 2. Of the Geshur royal family, son of king Ammihud; father of David's wife Maacah (2 Samuel 13:37); grandfather of Absalom. David formed the unfortunate connection doubtless in his invasion of the Geshurites (1 Samuel 27:8; 2 Samuel 3:3). His passion for beauty at all costs bore its bitter fruits. Talmai harboured Absalom, the beautiful son of a beautiful mother, when fleeing after murdering his brother Amnon.
