Strongs Concordance:

 

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Shalem

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 (Genesis 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.


Hitchcock's Names Dictionary
Shalem

same as Salem


Naves Topical Index
Shalem

Also called Shechem, a city of Canaan, sometimes translated in peace
Genesis 33:18


Smith's Bible Dictionary
Shalem

(safe). (Genesis 33:18) Probably not a proper name, but a place. It is certainly remarkable that there should be a modern village hearing the name of Salim three miles east of Nablus , the ancient Shechem.
