Gamaliel: a Pharisee and celebrated doctor of the law, who gave prudent worldly advice in the Sanhedrin respecting the treatment of the followers of Emmanuel of Nazareth:.Acts 5:34 "Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space."....29 A.D.

Paul is generally identified with the very celebrated Jewish doctor Gamaliel, grandson of Hillel and who is referred to as authority in the Jewish Mishna. We learn that Gamaliel was the preceptor of Paul:.Acts 22:3.

Gibeonites/Gibeon: These were people of Gibeon.(map), an ancient village of Palestine near Jerusalem, including perhaps the three confederate cities of Gibeon, Chephirah, Beeroth and Kirjath-jearim:.Joshua 9:17-24. They were Hivites.(Genesis 15:19-21).and mighty men. Having deceived Joshua into making a treaty with them, they were made hewers of wood and drawers of water for the house of God.

Saul had slain some of the Gibeonites:.2Samuel 21:1. This act by Saul upon the kind Gibeonites, brought a three year famine. 

gourd: any of several trailing or climbing plants related to the pumpkin, squash and cucumber and bearing fruits with a hard rind; the fruit of such a plant, often of irregular and unusual shape; the dried and hollowed out shell of one of these fruits, often used as a drinking utensil.

Ancient Jonah's gourd.(Jonah 4:6-10), grows in great abundance on the alluvial banks of the Tigris and on the plain between the river and the ruins of the ancient city of Nineveh.
   At the present day gourds are trained to run over structures of mud and brush to form boots to protect the gardeners from the heat of the noon-day Sun. It grows with extraordinary rapidity and when cut or injured withers away also with great rapidity.
   Bearing the Hebrew name 'kikayon' found only here in that reference in the book of Jonah, it was probably the kiki of the Egyptians, the 'croton'. This is the castor-oil plant, a species of ricinus, the palma Christi, so called from the palmate division of its leaves.
   Others with more probability regard it as the 'cucurbita', the 'el-keroa' of the Arabs, a kind of pumpkin peculiar to the East.
