Smith's Bible DictionaryGederah
(a sheepfold), a town of Judah in the lowland country, (Joshua 15:36) apparently in its eastern part. No town bearing this name has, however, been yet discovered in this hitherto little-explored district.
ATS Bible DictionaryGederah
A city in the plain of Judah, Joshua 15:36, probably the same with the preceding Geder, and with Beth-Gader, 1 Chronicles 2:51. It would thence seem to have pertained to the family of Caleb.
International Standard Bible EncyclopediaGEDERAH; GEDERATHITE
ge-de'-ra, ge-de'-ra-thit (ha-gedherah, "the enclosed place"): A town in the Shephelah of Judah, named with Socoh, Azekah, Shaaraim and Adithaim (Joshua 15:36). In 1 Chronicles 4:23 the Revised Version (British and American) reads, "the inhabitants of Netaim and Gederah," for the King James Version, "those that dwelt among plants and hedges." It is probably represented by Khirbet Jadireh, about 3 miles Southwest of Gezer. "Gederathite," applied to Jozabad (1 Chronicles 12:4), probably meant an inhabitant of this place.
Easton's Bible Dictionary
The fortress; a fortified place, a town in the plain (shephelah) of Judah (Joshua 15:36
). This is a very common Canaanite and Phoenician name. It is the feminine form of Geder (12:13
); the plural form is Gederoth (15:41
). This place has by some been identified with Jedireh, a ruin 9 miles from Lydda, toward Eleutheropolis, and 4 miles north of Sur'ah (Zorah), in the valley of Elah.
