GEMALLI (gē-măl'ĭ, camel owner or rider). The father of Ammiel, ruler of the tribe of Dan, and one of the twelve spies sent out to explore the land (Num.13.12).

GEMALLI gĭ măl’ ī (Heb. גְּמַלִּֽי), a son of Ammiel, a Danite, one of the ten spies sent by Moses into the Promised Land who returned with a dismal report and was judged by God and left to die in the wilderness, mentioned only in Numbers 13:12. The name Gemalli has been interpreted in various ways like “camel driver” or the like, but evidence is lacking.
