Edrei (ĕd're-i) strength, stronghold. 1. A capital city of Bashan. Numbers 21:33; Deuteronomy 1:4; Deuteronomy 3:1-10; Joshua 12:4. It was in the territory of Manasseh beyond (east of) Jordan. Numbers 32:33. It is not noticed in later Bible history, although it was an important city until the seventh century of the Christian era. Its ruins, called Derʾat, cover a circuit of three miles. Among the ruins are remains of churches, temples, and mosques. The place has now about 500 population. 2. A town of Naphtali. Joshua 19:37. Porter identifies it with Tel Khuraibeh, near Kedesh; Conder, with Yàter.
