(Heb. Gederotha'yim, גְּדֵרוֹתִיַם, two folds (See GEDER); Sept. omits, but some copies translate αἱ ἐπαύλεις αὐτῆς, Vulgate Gederothaim), the name of a town in the plain of Judah (Joshua 15:36), mentioned in connection with GEDERAH (See GEDERAH) (q.v.); where, probably, instead of rendering the copulative ו "and," we should (with the margin) translate it "or," since otherwise there would be 15 instead of 14 cities enumerated, as stated in the text. So Schwarz (Palest. page 103), who, however, confounds it with Gederoth, and even with the Gazara (q.v.) of the Apocrypha (see Reland, Palaest. page 778).
