GEDERAH . AV [Note: Authorized Version.] of 1 Chronicles 4:23 b reads, ‘Those that dwell among plants (RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ‘plantations’) and hedges,’ but RV [Note: Revised Version.] gives ‘the inhabitants of Netaim and Gederah,’ and this is probably the correct rendering. In that case the Gederah referred to would probably be the city of that name located by Joshua 15:36 in the Shephçlah, the modern Jedireh and the Gedour of Eusebius. The gentilic name Gederathite occurs in 1 Chronicles 12:4 .
