Beth Gader
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A city (or perhaps person) of the tribe of Judah (1 Chr 2:51; Josh 12:13). The etymology and associations with Kiriath-jearim and Bethlehem make it likely that Beth-Gader was a city. However, its use in a genealogy means it could have been a personal name (Beth-Gader, son of Hareph).
