GEDOR . A town of Judah ( Joshua 15:58 ; cf. 1 Chronicles 4:4 ; 1 Chronicles 4:18 ; 1 Chronicles 12:7 ). It is generally identified with the modern Jedûr north of Beit-sur. 2 . The district from which the Simeonites are said to have expelled the Hamite settlers ( 1 Chronicles 4:39 ff.). The LXX [Note: Septuagint.] , however, reads Gerar , and this suits admirably as to direction. 3 . A Benjamite, an ancestor of king Saul ( 1 Chronicles 8:31 ; 1 Chronicles 9:37 ). 4. 5. The eponym of two Judahite families ( 1 Chronicles 4:4 ; 1 Chronicles 4:18 ).
