Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
EDREI . 1. A royal city of Og, king of Bashan ( Deuteronomy 1:4; Deuteronomy 3:10 , Joshua 12:4; Joshua 13:12 ), the scene of the battle at which Og was defeated ( Numbers 21:33 , Deuteronomy 3:1 ); assigned to the eastern division of Manasseh ( Joshua 13:31 ). It seems to be the modern ed-Der’a , where are several important remains of antiquity, including a great subterranean catacomb. 2. A town in Naphtali ( Joshua 19:37 ), not identified.
