According to the Book of Mormon, the hill Shim (/ʃɪm/[1]) was in the Land of Antum and the location where Ammaron deposited the plates containing what was to become part of the Book of Mormon (see Mormon 1:3). The prophet Mormon later retrieved these plates from the hill (see Mormon 4:23).

Moroni, the son of Mormon, tells in the Book of Ether (a book in the Book of Mormon) that the Jaredite king Omer passed by the hill of Shim with his family on his way to Ablom (see Ether 9:3). Also implied in the same verse is that the hill was near where the Nephites were destroyed.
