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.
