5. See GEDER. (1 Chronicles 4:39.) Simeonite chiefs in Hezekiah's reign "went to the entrance of (rather as Keil, 'westward from') Gedor unto the eastern side of the valley to seek pasture for their flocks," and they dislodged the Hamites "dwelling there of old, and dwelt in their room." On the way between southern Judah and mount Seir. Septuagint reads "Gerar" (but Simeon's dwellings did not extend westward from Gerar, but were all E. of Gerar).
