(Ge·deʹrah) [Stone Pen].
1. A city in the Shephelah assigned to Judah. (Jos 15:20, 33, 36) Gederah is usually identified with Jedireh (Gedera), about 22 km (14 mi) WNW of the suggested site of Eshtaol. Some of the inhabitants of this city were known for their pottery.—1Ch 4:23.
2. Apparently the name of a site in Benjamin’s territory, the home of “Jozabad the Gederathite.” (1Ch 12:1, 2, 4) Some geographers tentatively identify it with Judeira, about 1.5 km (1 mi) NE of Gibeon.
