City in the hill country of Judah, mentioned in the list of cities in the inheritance of that tribe (Josh. xv. 58). Halhul was about four miles to the north of Hebron, and, according to a Jewish tradition (Hottinger, "Cippi Hebr." p. 32), was the burial-place of Gad, David's seer (I Sam. xxii. 5; II Sam. xxiv. 11). It is probably the modern Ḥalḥul.
