And they went to the entrance of Gedor
There was a city of this name in the tribe of Judah, ( 1 Chronicles 4:18 ) but this seems to be further off, and perhaps is the same with Gedaris, mentioned by Strabo
F12 along with Azotus and Askelon, cities that belonged to the Philistines; since it was inhabited by the posterity of Ham, of whom the Philistines were, as in the following verse:
even unto the east side of the valley;
which was near to Gedor, and a suitable place:
to seek pasture for their flocks;
their sheep and goats.
