Gilead: Name of three people and two geographical locations in the Bible
Gilead or Gilad is the name of three people and two geographic places in the Bible. Gilead may mean 'hill of testimony'. If this is the case, it is likely derived from ื’ืœืขื“ galโ€›รชd, which in turn comes from gal and โ€›รชd. There also exists an alternative theory that it means 'rocky region'. It is now within the Kingdom of Jordan.
