Gerzites

Additional Links

Gizrites, or Gerizzites. A Bedouin tribe once dwelling in central Palestine, from whom mount Gerizim took its name, as another mount was named from the Amalekites when dwelling in ancient times in Ephraim (Judges 12:15). Afterward driven to the southern border of Palestine, where with the Geshurites and Amalekites they were found by David in Saul's days (1 Samuel 27:8), rich in "sheep, oxen, asses, camels, and apparel." Read "Gerizzites."
