Jahaz (jâ'hâz), place trodden down. A Moabitish city situated near the desert; afterward reckoned to the tribe of Reuben and assigned to the priests. Numbers 21:23; Deuteronomy 2:32; Isaiah 15:4; Jeremiah 48:34. It is also called Jahaza, Joshua 13:18, A. V. Jahazah, Joshua 21:36; Jeremiah 48:21, A. V., and Jahzah. 1 Chronicles 6:78 A. V., and Jeremiah 48:21 R. V. At this place the Israelites gained a victory over Sihon and conquered the territory between the Arnon and the Jabbok; but in later times Jahaz seems to have been occupied by the Moabites.
