  Geshur 
  bridge,  the  name  of  a  district  or  principality  of  Syria  near 
  Gilead,  between  Mount  Hermon  and  the  Lake  of  Tiberias  (2  Sam. 
  15:8;  1  Chr.  2:23).  The  Geshurites  probably  inhabited  the  rocky 
  fastness  of  Argob,  the  modern  Lejah,  in  the  north-east  corner  of 
  Bashan.  In  the  time  of  David  it  was  ruled  by  Talmai,  whose 
  daughter  he  married,  and  who  was  the  mother  of  Absalom,  who  fled 
  to  Geshur  after  the  murder  of  Amnon  (2  Sam.  13:37).
