Gedor (Gee´dor; Heb., possibly “stone pile”)

1 The name of a town inherited by Judah (Josh 15:58), possibly Khirbet Jedur southwest of Bethlehem and northwest of Hebron. 2 A son of the Judahite Penuel (1Chr 4:4) who, it has been suggested, may have been the founder of the town inherited by Judah. 3 A son of the Judahite Jered (1Chr 4:18). 4 The name of the entrance to some rich grazing land (1Chr 4:39). Suggestions have been made that, in this case, “Gedar” should be changed to read “Gerar.” 5 A son of the Benjaminite Jeiel and Maacha (1Chr 8:31; 1Chr 9:37). 6 The residence of Jehoram (1Chr 12:7).
