Gederah (A.V., I Chronicles 4:23, hedges), ge-de'-rah, (Heb.)--a walled place; an inclosure; a protection; a fortification; a cote; a fold, for sheep or cattle; sheepfold; corral. The final "h" in Gederah is the symbol of the breath, life, soul, spirit. This character, "he," while forming a feminine construction, emphasizes the expression to which it is attached.

A city in the lowlands of Judah (Josh. 15:36.

Meta. The metaphysical import of Gederah is virtually the same as that of Geder, except that Gederah refers more to the soul, or feminine, in man. When the soul is established in the consciousness that God is man's protection, defense, and unconquerable strength, it (the soul) becomes a fold, for sheep or cattle, a place where man's natural thoughts about life and strength can abide and be fed and protected.
