Lah'mi (Heb. Lachmi', לִחמַי, my bread; Septuag. Λεεμεί v. r. Λοομί, Λαχμί, etc.; Vulg. Bethlehemites), a person named (1Ch 20:5) as being the brother of (Goliath, and slain by Elhanan, one of David's heroes; but prob. a corrupt reading for BETH-LEHEMITE, as in the parallel passage (2Sa 21:19). SEE ELHANAN. It wouldi seem that both these passages should be restored so as to read thus: " Elhanan, the son of Jair (or Dodo) of Bethlehem, slew the brother of Goliath of CGath, whose spear-handle was like a weaver's beam." SEE JAIR.
