Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible [1]

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 Shephçlah, the modern Jedireh and the Gedour of Eusebius. The gentilic name Gederathite occurs in   1 Chronicles 12:4 .

Fausset's Bible Dictionary [2]

("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).

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary [4]

A city in the plain of Judah,  Joshua 15:36 , probably the same with the preceding Geder, and with Beth-Gader,  1 Chronicles 2:51 . It would thence seem to have pertained to the family of Caleb.

Morrish Bible Dictionary [5]

City in the lowlands of Judah.  Joshua 15:36 . Identified with ruins at Jedireh, 31 50' N, 34 57' E .

Easton's Bible Dictionary [6]

 Joshua 15:36

Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature [7]

(Heb. with the article hag-Gederah', הִגְּדֵרָה , The Fortress or Sheep-Cote (See Geder); Sept. Γαδηρα ) , a town in the Shephelah or plain of Judah ( Joshua 15:36, where it is mentioned Uetween Adithaim and Gederothaim [q.v.]). According to Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Γάδειρα , Gaddera), it was still a village ( Γέδορα , Gadora) near Jerusalem "around the Terebinth," an expression which Raumur (Palast. page 193) interprets of the valley of Elah or the terebinth ( 1 Samuel 17:1); although Keil (on Joshua, ad loc.) shows that it means the wood of Mamre, near Hebron, and Reland had pointed out that this was in the mountains and not the lowlands of Judah (Palest. page 802). Van de Velde has identified the site with that of "Gheterah or Ghederah, a village on the south banks of wady Surar, near the high road from Ramleh to Ghuzzeh" (Memoir, page 313); a position exactly agreeing with that of the Cedes ( Κέδους , Jerome Gedrus), described by Eusebius (Ononast. s.v. Γεδούρ , Jerome Gaedur) as a very large village ten miles from Diospolis (Lydda) towards Eleutheropolis (Beit-Jibrin). The inhabitants seem to be those designated as Gederites (q.v.) in  1 Chronicles 27:28 (comp. 4:23, "hedges").
