ATS Bible Dictionary
Gedor

A city in the mountains of Judah, surrounded by fat pastures, and formerly occupied by the Amalekites, 1 Chronicles 4:39; 12:7; Joshua 15:58. It is now called Jedur, and lies about eight miles southwest of Bethlehem. Gedor is also the name of a man, 1 Chronicles 8:31; 9:37.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
A wall.

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

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

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

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
GEDOR

ge'-dor (gedhor; Codex Vaticanus, Geddor, Codex Alexandrinus, Gedor):

(1) A town in the mountains of Judah, named with Halhul and Beth-zur (Joshua 15:58). It seems to be referred to by Eusebius as Gadeira (Onomasticon, under the word), which he identifies with Gaidora (Jerome calls it Gadora), a village in the borders of Jerusalem, near the terebinth. It is probably represented today by Khirbet Jedur, about 7 miles North of Hebron (PEF, III, 313, Sh XXI).

(2) Among the Benjamites who joined David at Ziklag were the sons of Jeroham of Gedor (1 Chronicles 12:7). No trace of this name is found in the territory of Benjamin. It may be identical with (1).

(3) The Simeonites are said to have gone to the entering in of Gedor in search of pasture for their flocks. They smote and expelled the Meunim, "and dwelt in their stead" (1 Chronicles 4:39). Here the Septuagint reads Gerar, and this is probably correct.

(4) A family in Judah (1 Chronicles 4:4).

(5) An ancestor of Saul (1 Chronicles 8:31).
