Holman Bible Dictionary - Gittaim
(giht' tay ihm) Place name meaning, “two winepresses.” City to which people of Beeroth fled after Israel entered Canaan. The Bible does not tell the precise time (2 Samuel 4:3 ). After the Exile, part of the tribe of Benjamin settled there (Nehemiah 11:33 ). This could be the same as the Gath of 1 Chronicles 7:21 ; 1 Chronicles 8:13 , but that is not certain. The location is not certain, probably near Lydda and thus in Philistine territory at Rash Abu Hamid.
