Γαμαιζαί), a city is the plain of the kingdom of Judah, mentioned in connection with Timnah, and taken, with its dependent villages (Heb. daughters), by the Philistines in the time of Ahaz (2Ch 28:18); now Jimzu, a common and rather large village, on an eminence, on the south side of the road, about an hour south-east of Ludd (Lydda or Ramleb); with many threshing-floors and ancient cisterns used as magazines for grain (Robinson's Researches, 3:56). It is mentioned in the Talmud (Schwarz, Palest. page 136).
