gar´d ' n - ẽr ( κῆπουρος , kḗpouros ): "Gardener" occurs once in the English Versions of the Bible ( John 20:15 ), the translation of kḗpos and oúros , "warden" or "keeper." It is likely that the man referred to was the watchman or keeper (Arabic naṭûr ; Hebrew nōcēr ), corresponding to those mentioned in 2 Kings 17:9 ; 2 Kings 18:8 ; Job 27:18 , etc., and not one who did the manual labor. It is the common practice in Palestine today to set a watchman over a garden during its productive season. See WATCHMAN .
