Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Lahmi
1 Chronicles 20:5. (See ELHANAN; JAARE OREGIM.) 2 Samuel 21:19.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Lahmi
(lah' mi) Personal name meaning “my bread” or perhaps an abbreviated form of Bethlehemite. Brother of the giant Goliath. Elhanan the son of Jair killed him (1 Chronicles 20:5 ). The parallel passage (2 Samuel 21:19 ) says Elhanan the Bethlehemite killed Goliath. Compare 1 Samuel 17:1 . The Chronicler may have been using a text of Samuel which copyists had made difficult to read and have interpreted it to the best of his ability. Some interpreters think the present text of Samuel represents copyists' confusion with the Chronicler's text accurate. See Elhanan; Goliath.



Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Lahmi
LAHMI . The brother of Goliath the Gittite, slain by Elhanan the son of Jair ( 1 Chronicles 20:5 ). There is a discrepancy between this passage and the parallel passage in 2 Samuel 21:19 , where we read that ‘Elhanan [wh. see] the Bethlehemite slew Goliath the Gittite.’ If the text of Chronicles is the more correct, the designation Bethlehemite of Samuel is simply a corruption of the name Lahmi , but the converse might also be the case.
