(Heb. Chatsar'-Gaddah', גִּדָּה חֲצִר , village of fortune; Sept. Ἀσεργαδδά v.r. Σερείμ), a city on the southern border of Judah, mentioned between Moladah and Heshmon (Joshua 15:27). Modern writers (see Reland, Palest. p. 707), following the suggestion of Jerome (Onomast. s.v.; who, as suggested by Schwarz, Palestine, p. 100, has probably confounded this place with En-Gedi), have sought for it near the Dead Sea; but the associated names appear to locate it nearer midway towards the Mediterranean. (See HAZERIM). Mr. Grove suggests (Smith, Dict. s.v.) that it is possibly the modern ruined site marked as Jurrah on Van de Velde's Map, west of el-Melh (Moladah), "by the change so frequent in the East (?) of D. to R." (See JUDAH, TRIBE OF).
