Holman Bible Dictionary - Shaalbim
(ssha al' bim) Place name meaning, “place of foxes.” Spelled and interpreted differently in different texts and early Greek versions. See Judges 1:35 ). Part of Solomon's second district for supplying provisions for the royal household (1 Kings 4:9 ). Its location is probably modern Selbit seven miles southeast of Lydda and three miles northwest of Ajalon. David's military hero Eliahba came from Shaalbim (2 Samuel 23:32 ).

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Shaalbim
SHAALBIM . A town mentioned with Mt. Heres and Aijalon as being occupied by the Amorites ( Judges 1:35 ). It was, with Makaz and Beth-shemesh, in the district of one of Solomon’s commissariat officers ( 1 Kings 4:9 ); and if it be the same place as Shaalabbin, it is mentioned with Aijalon and Beth-shemesh in Joshua 19:42 . It is probably identical with Shaalbon , the home of one of David’s heroes, who is called ‘the Shaalbonite ’ ( 2 Samuel 23:32 , 1 Chronicles 11:33 ). It may perhaps be identified with Selbît , about 8 miles N. of Beth-shemesh. Possibly Shaalbim should be read for Shaalim in 1 Samuel 9:4 .
