GIMZO (PLACE) [Heb gimzô (גִּמְזֹו)]. A town in the Shephelah captured by the Philistines from Judah around the time of the Syro-Ephraimite war (ca. 734 b.c.e., see Thompson 1982, esp. pp. 104–114; 2 Chr 28:18). Presumably the town had originally come under Judean control at the time of Uzziah’s incursions
