Easton's Bible Dictionary - Diblaim
Doubled cakes, the mother of Gomer, who was Hosea's wife (Hosea 1:3 ).
Holman Bible Dictionary - Diblaim
(dihb lay' ihm) Personal or place name meaning, “two fig cakes.” Hosea 1:3 lists Diblaim as a parent of Gomer, Hosea's harlot wife. Some Bible students see Hosea's father-in-law so named; others, his mother-in-law. The latter case is combined with an understanding that she was also a harlot whose price was two fig cakes. Others would equate Diblaim with the place name Beth-diblathaim. See Beth-diblathaim . The most direct explanation seems to be that Diblaim is Gomer's father, of whom nothing more is known.
