Ged'eroth (Heb. Gederoth', הִגּדֵרַי, fortresses or sheep-cotes SEE GEDER; in Chron. with the art.; Sept. Γαδηρώθ v.r. in Chron. Γαληρώ, etc.; Vulg. Gideroth, Gederoth), a town in the "valley" of Judah (Jos 15:41, where it is mentioned between Kithlish and Bethdagon); one of those captured by the Philistines from Ahaz (1Ch 28:18). It cannot be identical with the Gederah or Gederothaim (q.v.) of Judah (which lay in a different group), nor yet with either Geder or Gedor (which were in the mountains). The associated names require a position "in the actual plain from north to south between the hilly region and the Philistine coast" (Keil, on Joshua ad loc.); perhaps at the modern Beit-Tima, marked on Van de Velde's Map as 6 miles east of Ascalon.
