Γάζα), one of the five cities of the Philistines, Joshua 11:22; Judges 16:1, 21 Judges 16:21; 1 Samuel 6:17; Jeremiah 25:20; Amos 1:6, Zephaniah 2:4 a royal city (Zechariah 9:5), situated on the southern borders of Palestine (Genesis 10:19; 1 Kings 5:4), taken by the Jews in the time of the Judges (Judges 1:18), but soon after recovered again by the Philistines. It is frequently mentioned by the Greek writers, of whom Plutarch calls it the greatest city of Syria; Arrian calls it a great city, situated on a lofty place, and well fortified. It even now retains its ancient name (غزّة). Its history is given at considerable length by Reland, in Palæstina, p. 788-800. Gent. n. עֲזָּתִי Judges 16:2.
