Goah; Goath

GOAH; GOATH

go'-a, go'-ath (go`ah; the King James Version; Septuagint reads ex eklekton lithon):

A place named in describing the boundaries of Jerusalem as restored in the "days to come" (Jeremiah 31:39). If Gareb is the Northeast hill, then probably Goah is to be identified with the Northwest hill, which is called by Josephus "the camp of the Assyrians" (BJ, V, vii, 3; xii, 2).

See JERUSALEM.
