Gerar was a city of Arabia Petr(9161), under a king of the
Philistines, 25; miles from Eleutheropolis beyond Daroma, in
the south of Judah. From ch. 10:19, it appears to have been
situated in the angle where the south and west sides of Canaan
met, and to have been not far from Gaza. Jerome, in his
Hebrew Traditions on Genesis, says, from Gerar to Jerusalem
was three days' journey. There was a wood near Gerar, spoken
of by Theodoret; and a brook, (ch. 26:26,) on which was a
monastery, noticed by Sozomen.
