Gezrite

Additional Links
(gehz' rite) KJV spelling of name of people in 1 Samuel 27:8 , where the Hebrew text tradition shows both Girzites (NIV, NAS, NRSV, TEV) and Gezrite. REB reads Gizrite. Gezrite or Gizrite would refer to inhabitants of Gezer, but Gezer is too far north for the Samuel context. We know nothing else of the Girzites. 1 Samuel 27:8 says they had lived in the southwestern edge of Palestine from time immemorial and that David raided them from his base at Ziklag.
