ged´ē̇ - roth , ge - dē´rōth ( גּדרות , gedhērōth ): A town in the Shephelah of Judah, named with Kithlish, Beth-dagon, Naamah and Makkedah ( Joshua 15:41 ). It is mentioned along with Bethshemesh and Aijalon as taken by the Philistines in the reign of Ahaz (2 Chronicles 28:18 ). It possibly corresponds with the "Kidron" of 1 Macc 15:39, 41; 16:9. Eusebius, Onomasticon places a very large village named Gedrom 10 Roman miles from Lydda on the road to Eleutheropolis. This points to Ḳaṭrah , Southeast of Yebnah .
