Geshur was a territory in the northern part of Bashan, in ancient Levant, adjoining the province of Argob ( ) and the kingdom of Aram or Syria. ( ; ) It was allotted to the half-tribe of Manasseh, which settled east of the Jordan river; but its inhabitants, the Geshurites, could not be expelled. ( )
In the time of David, Geshur was an independent kingdom, and David married Maachah, a daughter of Talmai, king of Geshur. ( , ) Her son Absalom fled to his mother's native country, after the murder of his half-brother and David's eldest son, Amnon. Absalom stayed there for three years before being rehabilitated by David. (ib. 13:37, 15:8)
