Gar'mite (Heb. with the art. הִגִּרמִי, hag-Garnzi'; Sept. Γαρμί v.r. Ο᾿ταρμί and ῾Ογαρμί; Vulg. Garmi), an epithet of KEILAH SEE KEILAH (q.v.) in the obscure genealogy (1Ch 4:19) of Mered (q.v.); apparently to denote its strength (i.q. bony, from גֶּרֶם; see Pr 25:15; Job 40:18); bhmt'regarded by Gesenius and FUrst (after the Targum, ad loc.) as a proper name: the form (like that of the associated soubriquets) is patrial, as if from a town, Gerem; but no such place is elsewhere mentioned, unless it be the Beth-Garem (בית גרם) of the Talmud (Erubim, fol. 19, a), and the Mansul Garem of Astori, east of Gaza, referred to by Schwarz (Palest. page 118) as now unknown.
