Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Moresheth-Gath
MORESHETH-GATH . Micah 1:14 only. It was probably the birth-place of the prophet Micah ( Micah 1:1 , Jeremiah 26:18 ), and must have been in the Shephçlah. The Onomasticon locates it east of, and near to, Eleutheropolis.

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Gath-he'Pher, or Git'Tah-he'Pher
(wine-press on the hill ), a town on the border of the territory of Zebulun, not far from Japhia, now 'Yafa , ( Joshua 19:12,13 ) celebrated as the native place of the prophet Jonah. (2 Kings 14:25 ) El-Meshhad , a village two-miles east of Sefurieh , is the ancient Gath-hepher.
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Gath
One of the five royal cities of the Philistines, and to which Goliath belonged. It is not mentioned as having been given to any of the tribes. It was to this city that the ark was carried when taken in war. 1 Samuel 5:8 . To Achish king of Gath David resorted when his faith failed him as to God's protection. 1 Samuel 27:2-4 : cf. 1 Samuel 21:10,12 . Afterwards when he was king and in power he took Gath and her towns out of the hand of the Philistines. Uzziah also fought against the place and broke down its walls. 1 Chronicles 18:1 ; 2 Chronicles 26:6 . After Micah 1:10 we hear no more of Gath among the cities of the Philistines: cf. Zephaniah 2:4 ; Zechariah 9:5,6 . It may have been ruined. Its site is identified with Tell es Safl, 31 43' N, 34 51' E , where there are extensive ruins and cisterns hewn out of the rock. It commanded the entrance to the valley of Elah.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Moresheth-Gath
Possession of the wine-press, the birthplace of the prophet (Micah 1:14 ), who is called the "Morasthite" (Jeremiah 26:18 ). This place was probably a suburb of Gath.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Moresheth Gath
("possession of Gath"), named by Micah alone (Micah 1:14), himself a Morasthite, i.e. of Moresheth. In the shephelah or "rolling low hills" of Judah. "Thou (Jerusalem) shalt give presents to Moresheth," begging for its help; but Maurer," thou shalt give a writing of renunciation (renouncing all claim) to Moresheth." "Gath" appended implies Moresherh for a time had fallen under the power of the neighboring Philistines of Gath. Ewald, "thou shalt give compensation to Moresheth itself only the possession of another city." Gath also means a "winepress"; Moresbeth may be named Gath from the many winepresses around.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Gath
A wine-vat, one of the five royal cities of the Philistines (Joshua 13:3 ) on which the ark brought calamity (1 Samuel 5:8,9 ; 6:17 ). It was famous also as being the birthplace or residence of Goliath (1 Samuel 17:4 ). David fled from Saul to Achish, king of Gath (1 Samuel 21:10 ; 27:2-4 ; Psalm 56 ), and his connection with it will account for the words in 2 Samuel 1:20 . It was afterwards conquered by David (2 Samuel 8:1 ). It occupied a strong position on the borders of Judah and Philistia (1 Samuel 21:10 ; 1 Chronicles 18:1 ). Its site has been identified with the hill called Tell esSafieh, the Alba Specula of the Middle Ages, which rises 695 feet above the plain on its east edge. It is noticed on monuments about B.C. 1500. (See METHEGAMMAH .)
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Gath-Rimmon

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Gath-Hepher
Wine-press of the well, a town of Lower Galilee, about 5 miles from Nazareth; the birthplace of Jonah (2 Kings 14:25 ); the same as Gittah-hepher (Joshua 19:13 ). It has been identified with the modern el-Meshed, a village on the top of a rocky hill. Here the supposed tomb of Jonah, Neby Yunas, is still pointed out.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Gath-Rimmon
(gath-rihm' muhn) Place name meaning, “winepress on the pomegranate tree.” 1. Town in tribal territory of Dan (Joshua 19:45 ) and set aside for Levites (Joshua 21:24 ). It is usually located at tell Jerisheh on the Yarkon River in modern Tel Aviv, but some scholars locate it two miles to the northeast at tell Abu Zeitun. 1 Chronicles 6:69 lists Gath-rimmon in the tribe of Ephraim, but this is usually understood as a copyist's omission of a sentence at the beginning of 1 Chronicles 6:69 . Gath-rimmon also appears in the Hebrew text of Joshua 21:25 though not in the earliest Greek translation or in the parallel in 1 Chronicles 6:70 . Most scholars recognize that a copyist repeated Gath-rimmon from 1 Chronicles 6:24 , the original reading probably being Ibleam. See Ibleam .



Holman Bible Dictionary - Gath
(gath) Gath was one of the five cities that comprised the Philistine city-state system (1 Samuel 6:17 ). See Philistines. The inhabitants of Gath were referred to as the Gittites (1 Samuel 17:4 ; 2 Samuel 6:10-11 ). Because the Hebrew term gath/gat meant “winepress” and since vineyards and winepresses were widespread in the land, a number of towns in Palestine were named Gath. Usually the name was used with another name which helped distinguish one site from another, such as, Gath-Hepher, Gath-Rimmon and Moresheth-Gath.

By far the most frequently mentioned Gath in the Old Testament is Gath of the Philistines. In addition to Gath, the other towns of the Philistine city-state system were Ekron, Ashdod, Ashkelon and Gaza (1 Samuel 6:17 ). We may reasonably assume that Gath was the principal city among the five and served as the hub of the pentapolis. In other words, Ekron, Ashdod, Ashkelon, and Gaza were, in a sense, satellite cities of Gath.

Gath was strategically located for Philistine purposes. While we do not know the exact location, we do know the general area in which Gath was located. Based on information from the biblical accounts, Gath was located inland as opposed to the other Philistine towns which were on or near the coast. It was located in the Shephelah, that is, the band of foothills which lay between the coastal plain on the west and the central hill country on the east. Since the Israelites, at least during the period of the settlement, occupied the central hill country, Gath was in a position to protect Philistine territory from raids by the Israelites. At the same time it was convenient for the Philistines to initiate raids on Israelite communities from the city of Gath. Since a number of sites have been eliminated in recent years based on archaeological excavations, one of the most likely candidates for Philistine Gath is tell es-Safi, twelve miles east of Ashdod.

A number of the highlights of Gath's history are reflected in the Old Testament. Prior to the coming of the Israelites, Gath was a Canaanite city occupied by the Anakim, a group known for their large stature (Joshua 11:21-22 ). During the conquest of Canaan, Joshua and the Israelites apparently did not take the sites of Gaza, Gath, and Ashdod (Joshua 11:22 ). We may assume that these towns were taken by the Philistines at this point. Gath was one of the locations to which the Philistines took the ark (1 Samuel 5:8-9 ) and was the hometown of Goliath (1 Samuel 17:4 ) and Obed-edom (1 Chronicles 13:13 ). One of the most interesting bits of information is that at one point while Saul was in pursuit of David, David found sanctuary with Achish, the king of Gath, and perhaps became a vassal of the Philistines (1 Samuel 27:1-7 ). Eventually David defeated the Philistines and made Gath an Israelite town (1 Chronicles 18:1 ). Apparently Achish continued to be the king of Gath, perhaps as a vassal king, even during the reign of Solomon (1 Kings 2:39 ). During the period of the divided monarchy, Gath's history went through a series of changes. Rehoboam, the king for Judah (931-913 B.C.) fortified Gath and made it a fortress city of Judah (2 Chronicles 11:5-12 ). Hazael, king of Syria (about 843-797 B.C.), beseiged the city and captured it (2 Kings 12:17 ). Shortly thereafter, the inhabitants of Gath apparently rebelled against Hazael and established to some degree their independence. Finally, Uzziah, king of Judah (792-740 B.C.), partially destroyed Gath and made it once again a part of the territory of Judah (2 Chronicles 26:6 ). Around 711 B.C., Sargon II, the king of Assyria, conquered and perhaps destroyed the city. Apparently, at this point, Gath's history came to an end. This conclusion is reinforced by the fact that Gath is obviously omitted in the lists of Philistine sites mentioned by the prophets (Jeremiah 25:20 ; Amos 1:6-8 ; Zephaniah 2:4 ; Zechariah 9:5-6 ).

Holman Bible Dictionary - Moresheth, Moresheth-Gath
(moh' rih sshehth-gath) Place name meaning, “inheritance of Gath.” Home of the prophet Micah (Micah 1:1 ). The prophet pictured his home as a bride receiving a going away gift from Jerusalem, her father, a warning of exile for Jerusalem's leaders and thus separation from their neighbors (Micah 1:14 ). The city was apparently located near Philistine Gath and is usually identified with tell ej-Judeideh about twenty-two miles southwest of Jerusalem and nine miles east of Gath. Recently, this identification has been questioned. This may be the Gath Rehoboam fortified (2 Chronicles 11:8 ). It may be Muchrashti of the Amarna letters.



Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Gath
("a winepress"), Gath being in a vine-abounding country. One of the five great Philistine cities (Joshua 13:3; 1 Samuel 6:17). Goliath's abode (1 Samuel 17). Its people were the "Gittites," of whom was David's devotedly loyal friend Ittai (2 Samuel 15:19-22). In undesigned coincidence with the presence of giants in Gath, according to 1 Samuel 17; 2 Samuel 21:19-22, is Joshua 11:22; "only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod there remained Anakims." Gath was one of the five cities to which the Philistines carried about the ark of God (the five formed one political unity), and thereby brought on the people God's heavy visitation with emerods. It was' represented by one of the five golden emerods and five golden inlet sent to propitiate Jehovah (1 Samuel 5:9; 1 Samuel 6:4-5; 1 Samuel 6:10-18).

David there reigned madness to save his life; a second time he visited king Achish, and had Ziklag assigned to him as a residence (1 Samuel 21:10-15; 1 Samuel 27:28). Thence he attached and drew after him 600 Gittite followers, with Ittai their chief (2 Samuel 15:18); probably some at the time of his sojourn in Gath, and most when he smote and subdued the Philistines (2 Samuel 8:1). Though tributary to Israel, Gath still retained its own king (1 Kings 2:89). Hazael fought against it and took it (2 Kings 12:17). Uzziah gave a heavy blow to Gath, breaking down its wall (2 Chronicles 26:6; Amos 6:2). "Hamath ... Gath, be they better than these kingdoms?" Gath, once "better (stronger) than" Israel and Judah, fell; how vain then is your confidence in the strength of mounts Zion and Samaria!

In Amos 1:6, etc., Zephaniah 2:4-5; Zechariah 9:5-6, Gath is omitted; probably it had lost by that time its place among the five primary cities. Hezekiah, after Uzziah, conquered Philistia (2 Kings 18:8; Isaiah 14:29-81). Tell es Safieh occupies the site of Gath, which lay on the border between Judah and Philistia, between Shocoh and Ekron (1 Samuel 17:1; 1 Samuel 17:52). Saul came down from the hills by the road from Jerusalem to Gaza, which passes near Shocoh, and encountered the Philistines near the bend in the valley. Saul was on the E. of the valley, the Philistines on the W., as they came from the W. Gath was from its strength often alternately in the hands of Judah and of Philistia (2 Chronicles 11:8). It lay on a hill at the foot of Judah's mountains, ten miles E. of Ashdod, and ten S.E. of Ekron.

("winepress of the pomegranates".)

1. A city of Dan, given to the Levites (Joshua 19:45; Joshua 21:24; 1 Chronicles 6:69). On the Philistine plain.

2. A town of Manasseh, W. of Jordan, assigned to the Levites (Joshua 21:25). But Bileam (i.e. Ibleam, Joshua 17:11) in 1 Chronicles 6:70, which is probably the true reading in Joshua, the copyist's eye catching "Gath-rimmon" in the previous verse.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Gath
GATH . A city of the Philistine Pentapolis. It is mentioned in Joshua 11:22 as a place where the Anakim took refuge; but Joshua is significantly silent about the apportioning of the city to any of the tribes. The ark was brought here from Ashdod ( 1 Samuel 5:8 ), and thence to Ekron ( 1 Samuel 5:10 ). It was the home of Goliath ( 1 Samuel 17:4 , 2 Samuel 21:19 ), and after the rout of the Philistines at Ephes-dammim it was the limit of their pursuit ( 1 Samuel 17:52 [LXX [Note: Septuagint.] ]). David during his outlawry took refuge with its king. Achish ( 1 Samuel 21:10 ). A bodyguard of Gittites was attached to David’s person under the leadership of a certain Ittai; these remained faithful to the king after the revolt of Absalom ( 2 Samuel 15:18 ). Shimei’s servants ran to Gath, and were pursued thither by him contrary to the tabu laid upon him ( 1 Kings 2:40 ). Gath was captured by Hazael of Syria ( 2 Kings 12:17 ). An unsuccessful Ephraimite cattle-lifting expedition against Gath is recorded ( 1 Chronicles 7:21 ). The city was captured by David, according to the Chronicler ( 1 Chronicles 18:1 ). and fortified by Rehoboam ( 2 Chronicles 11:8 ). It was again captured by Uzziah ( 2 Chronicles 26:6 ). Amos refers to it in terms which imply that some great calamity has befallen it ( 2 Chronicles 6:2 ); the later prophets, though they mention other cities of the Pentapolis, are silent respecting Gath, which seems therefore to have dropped out of existence. The exact circumstances of its final fate are unknown. The topographical indications, both of the Scripture references and of the Onomasticon , point to the great mound Tell es-Safi as the most probable site for the identification of Gath. It stands at the mouth of the Valley of Elah, and clearly represents a large and important town. It was partially excavated by the Palestine Exploration Fund in 1899, but, unfortunately, the whole mound being much cumbered with a modern village and its graveyards and sacred shrines, only a limited area was found available for excavation, and the results were not so definite as they might have been.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Gath-Hepher
GATH-HEPHER ( Joshua 19:13 [AV [Note: Authorized Version.] wrongly Gittah-hepher , which is simply the form of the name with He locale ], 2 Kings 14:25 , ‘wine press of the pit or well’). The home of the prophet Jonah. It lay on the border of Zebulun, and is mentioned with Japhia and Rimmon the modern Yâfâ and Rummâneh . Jerome, in the preface to his Com. on Jonah, speaks of Geth quae est in Opher (cf. Vulg. [Note: Vulgate.] 2 Kings 14:25 ), and places it 2 Roman miles from Sepphoris ( Seffûrieh ), on the road to Tiberias. This points to el-Meshhed , a village on a slight eminence N. of the Tiberias road, 1 / 2 mile W. of Kefr Kenna , where one of Jonah’s many reputed tombs is still pointed out.

A city of Manasseh, assigned to the Kohathites ( Joshua 21:25 ). LXX [Note: Septuagint.] has Iebatha (B), or Baithsa (A), while 1 Chronicles 6:70 has Bileam = Ibleam (wh. see). The position of the town is not indicated, so in this confusion no identification is possible.

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Gath
(a wine press ), one of the five royal cities of the Philistines; ( Joshua 13:3 ; 1 Samuel 6:17 ) and the native place of the giant Goliath. (1 Samuel 17:4,23 ) It probably stood upon the conspicuous hill now called Tell-es-Safieh , upon the side of the plain of Philistia, at the foot of the mountains of Judah; 10 miles east of Ashdod, and about the same distance south by east of Ekron. It is irregular in form, and about 200 feet high. Gath occupied a strong position, ( 2 Chronicles 11:8 ) on the border of Judah and Philistia, (1 Samuel 21:10 ; 1 Chronicles 18:1 ) and from its strength and resources forming the key of both countries, it was the scene of frequent struggles, and was often captured and recaptured. (2 Kings 12:17 ; 2 Chronicles 11:8 ; 26:6 ; Amos 6:2 ) The ravages of war to which Gath was exposed appear to have destroyed it at a comparatively early period, as it is not mentioned among the other royal cities by the later prophets. (Zephaniah 2:4 ; Zechariah 9:5,6 ) It is familiar to the Bible student as the scene of one of the most romantic incidents in the life of King David. (1 Samuel 21:10-15 )

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Gath
One of the ‘five cities of the Philistines’, Gath was famous as the home of a number of giants, the most famous of whom was Goliath (Joshua 13:3; 1 Samuel 6:17-18; 1 Samuel 17:4; 2 Samuel 21:18-22; see also ANAK). It also became well known as the place where David took refuge from Saul (1 Samuel 21:10-15; 1 Samuel 27). Certain men of Gath became close friends of David. When David became king of Israel, he entrusted some of these men with important responsibilities (2 Samuel 6:10-11; 2 Samuel 15:19-21; 2 Samuel 18:2). Others became full-time soldiers in David’s army (2 Samuel 15:18). (For a map of the region and other details see PHILISTIA.)

Sentence search

Gittites - (See Gath) The 600 who followed David from Gath under "Ittai the Gittites," "a stranger and an exile" (2 Samuel 15:18-20). Obed Edom, being a Levite, must have derived his title "the Gittite" from some incidental connection with Gath; others derive his name from the Levitical city of Gath-rimmon (2 Samuel 6:10); but it seems strange if "Gittite" be used in one sense of Ittai of Gath, and in a different sense of Obed Edom (1 Chronicles 26:4)
Gath - (Gath) Gath was one of the five cities that comprised the Philistine city-state system (1 Samuel 6:17 ). The inhabitants of Gath were referred to as the Gittites (1 Samuel 17:4 ; 2 Samuel 6:10-11 ). Because the Hebrew term Gath/gat meant “winepress” and since vineyards and winepresses were widespread in the land, a number of towns in Palestine were named Gath. Usually the name was used with another name which helped distinguish one site from another, such as, Gath-Hepher, Gath-Rimmon and Moresheth-Gath. ... By far the most frequently mentioned Gath in the Old Testament is Gath of the Philistines. In addition to Gath, the other towns of the Philistine city-state system were Ekron, Ashdod, Ashkelon and Gaza (1 Samuel 6:17 ). We may reasonably assume that Gath was the principal city among the five and served as the hub of the pentapolis. In other words, Ekron, Ashdod, Ashkelon, and Gaza were, in a sense, satellite cities of Gath. ... Gath was strategically located for Philistine purposes. While we do not know the exact location, we do know the general area in which Gath was located. Based on information from the biblical accounts, Gath was located inland as opposed to the other Philistine towns which were on or near the coast. Since the Israelites, at least during the period of the settlement, occupied the central hill country, Gath was in a position to protect Philistine territory from raids by the Israelites. At the same time it was convenient for the Philistines to initiate raids on Israelite communities from the city of Gath. Since a number of sites have been eliminated in recent years based on archaeological excavations, one of the most likely candidates for Philistine Gath is tell es-Safi, twelve miles east of Ashdod. ... A number of the highlights of Gath's history are reflected in the Old Testament. Prior to the coming of the Israelites, Gath was a Canaanite city occupied by the Anakim, a group known for their large stature (Joshua 11:21-22 ). During the conquest of Canaan, Joshua and the Israelites apparently did not take the sites of Gaza, Gath, and Ashdod (Joshua 11:22 ). Gath was one of the locations to which the Philistines took the ark (1 Samuel 5:8-9 ) and was the hometown of Goliath (1 Samuel 17:4 ) and Obed-edom (1 Chronicles 13:13 ). One of the most interesting bits of information is that at one point while Saul was in pursuit of David, David found sanctuary with Achish, the king of Gath, and perhaps became a vassal of the Philistines (1 Samuel 27:1-7 ). Eventually David defeated the Philistines and made Gath an Israelite town (1 Chronicles 18:1 ). Apparently Achish continued to be the king of Gath, perhaps as a vassal king, even during the reign of Solomon (1 Kings 2:39 ). During the period of the divided monarchy, Gath's history went through a series of changes. ) fortified Gath and made it a fortress city of Judah (2 Chronicles 11:5-12 ). Shortly thereafter, the inhabitants of Gath apparently rebelled against Hazael and established to some degree their independence. ), partially destroyed Gath and made it once again a part of the territory of Judah (2 Chronicles 26:6 ). Apparently, at this point, Gath's history came to an end. This conclusion is reinforced by the fact that Gath is obviously omitted in the lists of Philistine sites mentioned by the prophets (Jeremiah 25:20 ; Amos 1:6-8 ; Zephaniah 2:4 ; Zechariah 9:5-6 )

In consequence of the death of Uzzah (for it was a divine ordinance that only the Levites should handle the ark, Numbers 4 ), who had put forth his hand to steady the ark when the cart in which it was being conveyed shook by reason of the roughness of the road, David stayed the procession, and conveyed the ark into the house of Obed-edom, a Philistine from Gath
Baal - Baalath (bâ'al-ăth), mistress, a town of Dan named with Gibbethon, Gath-rimmon and other Philistine places
Philistim - ... After this, in the time of Joshua, we find their country divided into five lordships or principalities; namely, Gaza, Askelon, Ashdod, Gath, and Ekron; giving sometimes also, as it appears, the title of king to their respective rulers; Achish being termed king of Gath, 1 Samuel 21:10
Shimei - After the lapse of three years Shimei went after two slaves of his, who had fled to Achish of Gath
Zebulun - Thence it continued in a north-easterly direction, passing Gath-hepher and Rimmon, and across the plain until it reached Hannathon, known to Babylonians, c [Note: circa, about
Kiss - In the eastern world, many would have preferred death to the loss of the beard: and hence when David changed his behaviour before Achish, king of Gath, and feigned himself mad, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and "let his spittle Pall down upon his beard," (see 1 Samuel 21:13) Achish considered this disgrace done to his beard as the most confirmed proof of his madness, for no man in his right senses, he concluded, would have done so
Damascus - Hazael was defeated by Assyria in his turn, with great loss, at Antilibanus; but repulsed Ahaziah's and Jehoram's attack on Israel (2 Kings 8:28), ravaged Gilead, the land of Gad, Reuben, and Manasseh (2 Kings 10:32-33); took also Gath, and was only diverted from Jerusalem by Jehoash giving the royal and the temple treasures (2 Kings 12:17-18)
City - ‘The cities of Canaan,’ says Vincent, ‘were almost invariably perched upon a projecting spur of a mountain slope, or upon an isolated eminence in the plain: Megiddo, Gezer, Tell-es-Safy [Gath?] not to mention the hill of the primitive Jerusalem are characteristic examples of the former site, Taanach and Lachish of the latter
Ark of the Covenant - After the conquest, it was variously located at Gilgal, Shechem (Joshua 8:30-35 ; see Deuteronomy 11:26-32 ; Deuteronomy 27:1-26 ) or Bethel (Judges 20:26 ), wherever the tribal confederacy was Gathered for worship. The adventures of the ark in the cities of Ashdod, Gath, and Ekron are told to magnify the strength and glory of the Lord of the ark
Philistines - Down to this time Philistine power was concentrated in the hands of the rulers of the five cities of Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron, and Gath
Music And Musical Instruments - From these we Gather that Hebrew music was of a loud and piercing nature, far removed from the sweetness which modern taste demands. ... Gittîth , the heading of Psalms 8:1-9 ; Psalms 81:1-16 ; Psalms 84:1-12 , has also, but somewhat doubtfully, been referred to instruments named after Gath: so the early Jewish paraphrase (Targum), ‘the harp which David brought from Gath
Jonah - Son of Amittai of Gath Hepher in Zebulun (2 Kings 14:25-27, compare 2 Kings 13:4-7). The so-called "tomb of Jonah," Nebbi Junus (prophet Jonah), took its name probably from its being the site of a Christian church named after him, Jerome preserves the older tradition of the tomb being in his native village of Gath Hepher
Micah, Book of - He came from Maresheth (NIV) which probably should be identified with Moresheth-Gath
Music - From the name, it is supposed that David brought it from Gath
Judah, Tribe And Kingdom - For towns on the coastal plain see ASHDOD; ASHKELON; EKRON; Gath; GAZA
David - These encounters nerved him for his first great victory, the turning point of his life, the slaying of Goliath of Gath (1 Samuel 17:35). His brother Shimeah had two sons connected with his subsequent history, Jonadab, the subtle, bad, selfish adviser of incestuous Amnon (2 Samuel 13:3; 2 Samuel 13:32-33), and Jonathan who killed a giant of Gath (2 Samuel 21:21). "The mighty are Gathered against me, not for my transgression; . Unbelieving calculation of probabilities, instead of doing the right thing in prayerful faith, led David to flee to Israel's enemies, the Philistines and Achish of Gath
David - ... Independent Warrior David Gathered a band of impoverished and discontented people around him. ... After again refusing to kill Saul, the Lord's anointed, David attached himself to Achish, the Philistine king of Gath
Ephraim (1) - The last notice we have of him is his mourning for his sons killed in the foray by the men of Gath, and naming his new-born son (See BERIAH from the calamity, unconscious that that son would be the progenitor of the most remarkable of all his descendants, Joshua (1 Chronicles 7:20-23)
Samuel - " Gathering them at Mizpeh, Samuel poured water before Jehovah in confession of sin and in token of their consequent utter prostration and powerlessness (2 Samuel 14:14, inward dissolution through distress; Psalms 22:14; Psalms 58:7; Isaiah 12:3; John 7:37). )... The Philistines restored the cities and adjoining districts which they had taken from Israel, close up to Ekron and Gath, the cities of the Philistines; and the effect of Israel's victory on the Amorites was they kept peace with Israel (compare Joshua 10:6; Judges 1:34-35). At his death (1 Samuel 25:1) all the Israelites were Gathered together and lamented him and buried him in his house at Ramah
Wine - In Deuteronomy 11:14, "Gather in thy grain, wine" (tirosh ), it is described as a solid thing, eaten in Deuteronomy 12:7; compare 2 Chronicles 31:5-6. In Isaiah 65:8 "the tirowsh (vintage) is found in the cluster"; Isaiah 62:8-9, "the stranger shall not drink thy tirowsh , but they that have Gathered it . The ripe fruit was Gathered in baskets, and was carried to the winepress, consisting of an upper (Hebrew Gath , Greek leenos ) and lower vat (yekeb , Greek hupolenion ); the juice flowed from the fruit placed in the upper to the lower
David - The details of his life are Gathered from 1 Samuel 16:3 1 Kings 2:11 , 1 Chronicles 11:1 to 1 Chronicles 29:30 (besides some scattered notices in the earlier chapters of 1 Ch. It is necessary to bear in mind two points of importance in dealing with the records of the life of David: firstly, the Hebrew text is, in a number of cases, very corrupt (notably in the books of Samuel), and in not a few passages the Alexandrian (Greek) version is to be preferred; secondly, our records have been Gathered together from a variety of sources, and therefore they do not present a connected whole; that they are for this reason sometimes at variance with each other stands in the natural order of things. David Gathers these details from different people in the camp, and, feeling sure of the help of Jahweh, determines to fight the giant. Taking the sword of his late antagonist, Goliath, which was wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod, he makes for Gath , hoping to find refuge on foreign soil; but he is recognized by the Philistines, and fearing that they would take vengeance on him for killing their hero Goliath, he simulates madness (cf. ’ Here his relations come to him, and he Gathers together a band of desperadoes, who make him their captain. At one time there seemed to be some hope of reconciliation between Saul and David ( 1 Samuel 26:24-25 ), but evidently this was short-lived, for soon afterwards David escapes once more, and comes with six hundred followers to the court of Achish, king of Gath. The most obvious thing to do now would have been for Absalom to pursue David before he had time to Gather an army; but, against the advice of Ahithophel, he follows that of Hushai a secret friend of David who succeeds in inducing Absalom to waste time by lingering in Jerusalem. In the meantime David, hearing what is going on in Jerusalem, withdraws across the Jordan, and halts at Mahanaim; here he Gathers his forces together under the leadership of Joab. Wars of this kind presuppose the existence of a, comparatively speaking, large army; that David had a constant supply of troops may be Gathered from the details given in 1 Chronicles 27:1-34
Jonathan - At once "a wise man and learned scribe and counselor" (for the Hebrew dod , "uncle," means a relative and so "nephew": 1 Chronicles 27:32; 2 Samuel 21:21; 1 Chronicles 20:7), and a brave warrior who like David slew a giant Philistine, of Gath, remarkable for six toes and six fingers
Saul - ... Saul now undertook the great and difficult enterprise of freeing the land from its hereditary enemies the Philistines, and for this end he Gathered together an army of 3,000 men (1 Samuel 13:1,2 ). Thus roused, the Philistines, who Gathered an army of 30,000 chariots and 6,000 horsemen, and "people as the sand which is on the sea-shore in multitude," encamped in Michmash, which Saul had evacuated for Gilgal. " Saul proceeded to execute the divine command; and Gathering the people together, marched from Telaim (1 Samuel 15:4 ) against the Amalekites, whom he smote "from Havilah until thou comest to Shur," utterly destroying "all the people with the edge of the sword", i. The Philistines once more invaded the land, and Gathered their army between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephes-dammim, on the southern slope of the valley of Elah. It was here that David slew Goliath of Gath, the champion of the Philistines (17:4-54), an exploit which led to the flight and utter defeat of the Philistine army. ... After some time the Philistines "Gathered themselves together" in the plain of Esdraelon, and pitched their camp at Shunem, on the slope of Little Hermon; and Saul "Gathered all Israel together," and "pitched in Gilboa" (1 Samuel 28:3-14 )
David - Convinced by an interview with Jonathan that Saul's enmity was no mere transient passion, 1 Samuel 20:1-42, David went to Nob, where his duplicity cost the high priest his life, and thence to Achish, king of Gath, where, to escape the jealousy of the Philistines, he simulated madness. Returning into Judah, he Gathered a band of men, and maintained himself sometimes in the wilderness, sometimes hiding in caves, sometimes occupying a town, as Keilah
Wine And Strong Drink - The upper trough or press-vat ( Gath the ‘ winefat ’ of Isaiah 63:2 , elsewhere generally ‘winepress’) had a larger superficial area, but was much shallower than the lower trough or wine-vat ( yeqeb , Isaiah 5:2 , cf

High Place, Sanctuary - Similar ancient high places, but on a smaller scale, have been found at Tell es-Safi (perhaps the ancient Gath), and in the north of Palestine, by the Austrian and German explorers, of whose discoveries an excellent summary is given by Father Vincent in his recently published work above cited
Nehemiah - to Gath" (Jeremiah 31:39). Nehemiah had the trumpeter next him to give alarm, so as to Gather the people against the foe wherever he should approach; none put off their clothes all the time (Nehemiah 4:23). ) The dedication of the walls by Nehemiah, the princes, priests, and Levite singers in two companies, followed (Nehemiah 12:27-47); Nehemiah 12:2 Maccabees alleges that the temple too was now dedicated after its repair by funds Gathered from the people
Sin - The story of Jonah of Gath-hepher is the revelation of a growing feeling that the righteous dominion of Jehovah was not, in the exercise of its moral influence, confined exclusively to Israel
Palestine - Here were located the Philistine strongholds of Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron, and Gath
Jonath - ... But Jonah came to himself again during those five-and-twenty days or so, from the east gate of Nineveh back to Gath-hepher, his father's house

"Hezekiah smote them even unto Gaza (Gaza and Gath alone remained to them: Josephus, Ant. Hezekiah also "Gathered together the waters of the lower pool," i
Judea - In the southwest quarter of Judea were Gath, about twenty miles west from Jerusalem, near to which were the city of Eleutheropolis, a flourishing place in the second century; Makkedah, a strong place, eight miles north-east from Eleutheropolis; Bersabe, or Beersheba, about twenty-six miles south from Eleutheropolis; Gerar, between Beersheba and the sea coast; Azotus, or Ashdod, to the west of Eleuthero-polis, within a few miles of the sea, and the seat of a bishop in the first ages of the Christian church; Ascalon, a considerable maritime town, above forty-three miles south-west of Jerusalem; Gaza, fifteen miles southward from Ascalon; and Raphia, between Gaza and Rhinocurura, remarkable for a great battle in its neighbourhood, in which Philopater, king of Egypt, defeated Antiochus, king of Syria
Fortification And Siegecraft - At Tell es-Safi, again perhaps the ancient Gath the lower part of the city wall ‘shows external and internal facings of rubble with a packing of earth and small field stones,’ while the upper part had been built of large mud bricks (Bliss and Macalister, Excavations in Palestine , 30 to be cited in the sequel as BM
