A place in the wilderness journeyings (Deuteronomy 10:7), corresponding to Hor-haggidgad in Numbers 33:32. Septuagint in each case renders (Gadgad). The site cannot now be identified; but there may be an echo of the ancient name in that of Wady Gudaghid, a confluent of Wady Jerafeh, which comes down from et Tih into the `Arabah nearly due West of Petra. There are difficulties, however, as the consonants do not correspond.
