Geshurites

Geshurites

  • The inhabitants of Geshur. They maintained friendly relations with the Israelites on the east of Jordan ( Joshua 12:5 ; Joshua 13:11 Joshua 13:13 ).

  • Another aboriginal people of Palestine who inhabited the south-west border of the land. Geshuri in Joshua 13:2 should be "the Geshurite," not the Geshurites mentioned in ver. 11,13, but the tribe mentioned in 1 Samuel 27:8 .
