Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גִּלְעָד [Gilead], pr.n.

(1) of several men, as

(a) a son of Machir, grandson of Manasseh, Numbers 26:29, 30 Numbers 26:30. Hence patronym. גִּלְעָדִי Judges 11:1, 12:7.

(b) Judges 11:1, Judges 11:2.

(c) 1 Chronicles 5:14.

(2) with the art. הַגִּלְעָד (“hard, stony region;” according to Genesis 31:41, i.q. גַּלְעֵד “hill of witness” [which is of course the true etymology]), Gilead, a region of Palestine beyond Jordan. It properly designates the mountain district to the south of the river Jabbok (-Gen. 31:2148 ; Song of Solomon 4:1), with a city of the same name (Hosea 6:8 comp. Judges 12:7, LXX. which appears to be the same as רָמוֹת גִּלְעָד), where there are now two mountains (Jebel Jelâd and Jelûd), with the ruins of cities of the same names (see Burckhardt’s Travels, Germ. edit. ii. page 599). It is hence applied to the whole mountain tracts between Arnon and Bashan, inhabited by the tribes of Gad, Reuben, and the half tribe of Manasseh (now called البلقاع [el-Belka’] and جبل عجلون [Jebel-’Ajlûn]) Numbers 32:26, 29 Numbers 32:29; Deuteronomy 3:12; Joshua 12:2, Joshua 12:5, 13:10, 11 Joshua 13:11, 31 Joshua 13:31; Amos 1:3, 13. It is therefore used for the tribes of Gad and Reuben, Psalms 60:9, 108:9 for the tribe of Gad, Judges 5:17, comp. 5:16 although also, from the variety of usage in any thing of the kind, 1 Samuel 13:7, the land of Gad and Gilead are spoken of together. It once comprehends even Bashan, and extends to the northern boundary of Palestine, Deuteronomy 34:1.
