Easton's Bible Dictionary
The fortress; a fortified place, a town in the plain (shephelah) of Judah (Joshua 15:36 ). This is a very common Canaanite and Phoenician name. It is the feminine form of Geder (12:13); the plural form is Gederoth (15:41). This place has by some been identified with Jedireh, a ruin 9 miles from Lydda, toward Eleutheropolis, and 4 miles north of Sur'ah (Zorah), in the valley of Elah.
Holman Bible Dictionary
(gih dee' ruh) Place name meaning, “sheepfold” or “stone wall.” A village in the Shephalah or valley of Judah (Joshua 15:36 ). It is located at modern tell el-Judeireh north of Maraeshah and ten miles southeast of Lod. Villagers were noted for skill in making pottery, much of which was made for the king (1 Chronicles 4:23 ). The home of one of David's soldiers (1 Chronicles 12:4 ) apparently belongs in Benjamin (1 Chronicles 12:2 ), but he may have been living in Judah before joining David at Ziklag. Otherwise, this is a different Gederah located at Jedireh near Gibeon. See Geder .
Fausset's Bible Dictionary
("the sheepcote".) A town of Judah in the shephelah , or hills between the mountains and plain (Joshua 15:36). Near the "valley of the terebinth", near Azekah and Socoh. (See ELAH.) GEDEROTH "sheepcotes", and GEDEROTHAIM "two sheepcotes", were in the same region (Joshua 15:41).
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
GEDERAH . AV [Note: Authorized Version.] of 1 Chronicles 4:23 b reads, ‘Those that dwell among plants (RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ‘plantations’) and hedges,’ but RV [Note: Revised Version.] gives ‘the inhabitants of Netaim and Gederah,’ and this is probably the correct rendering. In that case the Gederah referred to would probably be the city of that name located by Joshua 15:36 in the ShephÃ§lah, the modern Jedireh and the Gedour of Eusebius. The gentilic name Gederathite occurs in 1 Chronicles 12:4 .

Gederothaim - (gehd' ih roh thay' ihm) Place name meaning, “two walls” or common noun referring to sheepfolds (compare REB translation, namely both parts of Gederah). The list contains fourteen cities without Gederothaim, causing several commentators to identify Gederothaim as a part of Gederah or as a copyist's duplication. See Gederah
Gederathite - Inhabitant of Gederah. 1 Chronicles 12:2 speaks of Josabad as a Benjamite, so that this Gederah is judged to be identified with Jedireh in Benjamin, 31 51' N, 35 11' E
