Goïm is thought to be the proper name of a people in northern Palestine (גּוֹיַם, Goyim', Jos 12:23; Sept. Γωείμ Vulg. gentes, A.V. "nations"), whose king lived at Gilgal (q.v.). A similar designation is employed also in Ge 14:1 respecting Tidal (q.v.), "king of nations" (Sept. ἔθνη,Vulg. gentes). It is, however, the universal term for GENTILES SEE GENTILES (q.v.).
