||When Jacob came from Padan Aram and entered the boundaries of Canaan, he arrived safely in the vicinity of Shechem. He set up camp in view of the city.
Vayavo Ya'akov shalem ir Shchem asher be'erets Kena'an bevo'o miPadan Aram vayichan et-peney ha'ir.
(Targum; Rashi; Josephus 1:21:1). Shalem in Hebrew. Others maintain that Shalem (Salem) is the name of a city near Shechem (Sefer HaYashar p. 87; Rashbam; Bachya; Chizzkuni; Abarbanel). Indeed, there is a city known as Salaam some 5 miles east of Shechem (cf. Yov'loth 30:1). See I Samuel 9:4. Although Jerusalem was also known as Shalem or Salem (Genesis 14:18), this is a different city (Chizzkuni).
This was also Abraham's first stop in the Holy Land (Genesis 12:6).
