A mountain in the territory of Ephraim. It is a landmark for the burial location of Joshua (Josh 24:30; Judg 2:9) at Timnath-heres, “north of Mount Gaash.” It also marked the location of some “torrents of Gaash” (2Sam 23:30), identified as the home of Hiddai, one of David’s Thirty, an elite force or bodyguard. The “wadis of Gaash” are identified as the home of Hurai, one of David’s warriors (1Chr 11:32), although the name may simply be a variant for Hiddai.
