gā´ash ( גּעשׁ , ga‛ash ): First mentioned in connection with the burial place of Joshua "in the border of his inheritance in Timnath-serah, which is in the hill-country of Ephraim, on the north (side) of the mountain of Gaash" (Joshua 24:30 ; compare Judges 2:9 ); see TIMNATH-HERES . The "brooks," or rather the wadies or "watercourses" of Gaash are mentioned as the native place of Hiddai (2 Samuel 23:30 ), or Hurai (1 Chronicles 11:32 ), one of David's heroes. No likely identification has been suggested. See EPHRAIM , MOUNT .
