Shaalbim

SHAALBIM (shā-ăl'bĭm, Heb. sha‘albîm). A town won by the Danites from the Amorites with the help of the Ephraimites (Judg.1.35). In Solomon’s time a representative from this town was appointed as commissary officer (1Kgs.4.9). “Eliahba the Shaalbonite” (2Sam.23.32; 1Chr.11.33), one of David’s special guards, came from this town (Shaalbon = Shaalbim). Some have identified Shaalbim with modern Selbit, a town in central Palestine.
