Gezer @ a precipice, an ancient royal Canaanitish city Joshua:10:33Joshua:12:12). It was allotted with its suburbs to the Kohathite Levites (21:21; 1Chronicles:6:67). It stood between the lower Beth-horon and the sea Joshua:16:3; kjvKings:9:17). It was the last point to which David pursued the Philistines ( 2Samuel:5:25; 1Chronicles:14:16) after the battle of Baal-perazim. The Canaanites retained possession of it till the time of Solomon, when the king of Egypt took it and gave it to Solomon as a part of the dowry of the Egyptian princess whom he married (kjvKings:9:15-17). It is identified with Tell el-Jezer, about 10 miles south-west of Beth-horon. It is mentioned in the Amarna tablets.
