Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גָּד m.

(t) fortune, i.q. גַּד No. 2; compare the root No. 3. (Arab. جَدُّ and Syr. ܓܕܰܐܳ id. جَدَّ to be fortunate, rich; جَدِيدُ fortunate.) Genesis 30:11. כתיב, בְּגָד. LXX. ἐν τύχῃ. Vulg. feliciter, sc. this happens to me. קרי, בָּא גָד “fortune has come.”

(2) Gad, pr.n.

(a) of a son of Jacob, taking his name from good fortune (Genesis 30:11); although, Genesis 49:19, allusion is made to another signification of it. [The Scripture account must be the correct one.] He was the ancestor of the tribe of the same name, whose limits are described in the mountains of Gilead (Deuteronomy 3:12, 16 ), between Manasseh and Reuben, -Josh. 13:2428 ; compare Numbers 32:34, 35 Numbers 32:35, 36 Numbers 32:36; Ezekiel 48:27, 28 Ezekiel 48:28. נַחַל הַגָּד “the stream of Gad,” i.e. Jabbok (not Arnon), 2 Samuel 24:5. Gent. noun is גָּדִי (different from גַּדִּי), mostly collect. הַגָּדִי Gadites, Deuteronomy 3:12; Joshua 22:1.

(b) a prophet who flourished in the time of David, 1 Samuel 22:5; 2 Samuel 24:11, seq.
