Gedor

Meaning: a wall

This was the name of three biblical places.

  1. A city in the mountains or hill country of Judah (Josh. 15:58), identified with Jedar, between Jerusalem and Hebron.

  2. 1 Chr. 4:39, the Gederah of Josh. 15:36, or the well-known Gerar, as the LXX. read, where the patriarchs of old had sojourned and fed their flocks (Gen. 20:1, 14, 15; 26:1, 6, 14).

  3. A town apparently in Benjamin (1 Chr. 12:7), the same probably as Geder (Josh. 12:13).
