Bil'eam (Heb. Bilam', בַּלעָם, same name as Balaam [q.v.]; Sept. Ι᾿εμβλάαν v. r. Ι᾿βλαάμ; Vulg. Baalam), a town in the western half of the tribe of Manasseh, named in 1Ch 6:70 as being given (with its "suburbs") to the Kohathites. In the lists in Jos 17; Jos 21 this name does not appear, but IBLEAM SEE IBLEAM (q.v.) and SEE GATH- RIMMON are substituted for it, the former by an easy change of letters, the latter uncertain. SEE BELAMON (Βελαμών) of Judith 8:3.
