Who and what is…

Meaning: a wall

This was the name of a biblical man and three biblical places.

  1. Gedor, the son of Jehudijah and probably Ezra

    And the sons of Ezra were, Jether, and Mered, and Epher, and Jalon: and she bare Miriam, and Shammai, and Ishbah the father of Eshtemoa. And his wife Jehudijah bare Jered the father of Gedor, and Heber the father of Socho, and Jekuthiel the father of Zanoah. And these are the sons of Bithiah the daughter of Pharaoh, which Mered took. —1 Chronicles 4:17-18 KJV

  2. Gedor, a city in the mountains or hill country of Judah (Joshua 15:58).

    It is identified with Jedar, between Jerusalem and Hebron.

  3. Gedor of 1 Chronicles 4:39, the Gederah of Joshua 15:36, or the well-known Gerar, as the Septuagint reads, where the patriarchs of old had sojourned and fed their flocks (Genesis 20:1, 14-15; 26:1, 6, 14)

  4. Gedor, a town apparently in the land of Benjamin (1 Chronicles 12:7)

    This is probably the same place as Geder in Joshua 12:13.
