Jima of Silla (died 134, r. 112–134) was the sixth ruler of Silla, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. He is commonly called Jima Isageum, isageum being the royal title in early Silla. As a descendent of Silla's founder Hyeokgeose, his surname was Bak.
Relations with Baekje, another of the Three Kingdoms, were peaceful during his reign, with the continuation of a truce established by Jima's predecessor Pasa. When the Malgal attacked from the north in 125, Jima requested aid from Baekje, and Giru sent an army to successfully repel the invaders.
In 123, he established relations with the Japanese kingdom of Wa.
Jima died without a male heir to the throne.
