Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גֵּרְשֹׁם (“expulsion,” i.q. גֵּרְשׁוֹן), pr.n.

(1) of a son of Moses and Zipporah, Exodus 2:22, 18:3. In the former place the etymology of this name is alluded to in such a manner that it appears that the writer took it for גֵּר שֹׁם i.q. גֵּר שָׁם a stranger there [this is of course the true etymology; Moses wrote by inspiration, and he knew very well why he gave this name to his own son] (compare ثُمَّ i.q. שָׁם); hence the LXX., that they might express this etymology more distinctly, have put Γηρσάμ.

(2) of a son of Levi, who is elsewhere called גֵּרְשׁוֹן which see.

(3)  Judges 18:30.

(4)  Ezra 8:2.
