Ge'der (Heb. id. גֶּדֶר, Sept. Γάδερ), a name signifying a wall (e.g. of a court, garden, sheepfold, etc., Pr 24; Pr 31; Eze 42:10), hence an enclosed or fortified place, and thus the basis of several names of castellated towns (e.g. Gederah, Gedor, Gadara, Gederoth, etc.); used once only (Jos 12:13) in this simple form as that of one of the thirty- one ancient royal towns of the Canaanites, whose kings were defeated by Joshua. It is mentioned between Debir and Hormah; but, as the localities in that list are not strictly in geographical order, it may be identified with the GEDOR SEE GEDOR (q.v.) in the mountains of Judah (Jos 15:58), and with the BETH-GADER SEE BETH-GADER (q.v.) of 1Ch 2:51. The notices of Schwarz (Palest. pages 86, 104) are quite confused.
