LAHMI (la'mī, Heb. lahmî). According to 1Chr.20.5, the brother of the giant from Gath who was killed by a certain Elhanan. In the parallel passage in 2Sam.21.9 the name Lahmi seems to have been corrupted to “Bethlehemite,” Hebrew, Beth Hallahmi.

LAHMI lä’ mī (לַחְמִ֗י). According to 1 Chronicles 20:5, he was the brother of Goliath and was killed by Elhanan; but in the parallel passage (2 Sam 21:19) it is stated that “Elhanan the son of Jaarevoregim, the Bethlehemite, slew Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.” This is apparently a textual error.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

According to 1Ch 20:5, the brother of Goliath of Gath.
