GERRENIANS ( 2Ma 13:24 ). The true reading and the people intended are both uncertain. The analogy of 1Ma 11:59 suggests some place near the border of Egypt; but Gerrha , between Pelusium and Rhinocolura, was in Egyptian territory. It has been suggested that the reference is to Gerar , an ancient Phil. city S. E. of Gaza. On the other hand, Syr. reads Gazar, i.e . Gezer or Gazara, not far from Lydda (cf. 1Ma 15:28 ; 1Ma 15:35 ).
