1. Genesis 36:23. Ptolemy (v. 17, sec. 3) mentions Manychiates W. of Petra: 2. 1 Chronicles 8:6-8; "the heads of the fathers of Geba, they removed them (led them captive, Qeri) to Manahath," "they," namely, Naaman, Ahiah, and Gera, and of these three Gera in particular, "he removed them" (led them captive).
