perfect, a place (probably the village of Salim) some 2 miles east of Jacob's well. There is an abundant supply of water, which may have been the reason for Jacob's settling at this place (Gen. 33:18-20). The Revised Version translates this word, and reads, "Jacob came in peace to the city of Shechem," thus not regarding it as a proper name at all.
In the patriarchal age it was the seat of Melchizedek's priestly kingdom, and was known as Salem, properly pronounced shalem.
Apparently the experiment passed off well; shalem has every reason to feel pleased with himself and well-disposed towards Gorla.
