GEDER . An unidentified Canaanitish town, whose king was amongst those conquered by Joshua ( Joshua 12:13 only). It is very probably identical with Beth-gader of 1 Chronicles 2:51 . In 1 Chronicles 27:28 Baal-hanan, who had charge of David’s olives and sycomores, is called the Gederite , which may be a gentilic name derived from Geder, although some prefer to derive it from Gederah (wh. see).
