Smith's Bible Dictionary
Gera

(a grain), one of the "sons," i.e. descendants, of Benjamin. (Genesis 46:21) Gera, who is named, (Judges 3:15) as the ancestor of Ehud, and in (2 Samuel 16:5) as the ancestor of Shimei who cursed David, is probably also the same person (though some consider them different persons).

Easton's Bible Dictionary

(1.) The son of Bela and grandson of Benjamin (1 Chronicles 8:3, 5, 7).

(2.) The father of Ehud the judge (Judges 3:15).

(3.) The father of Shimei, who so grossly abused David (2 Samuel 16:5; 19:16, 18).
