Goah
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
Alternatively, Goath. One of two hills near Jerusalem to which Jeremiah envisioned the restored Jerusalem extending (Jer 31:39). Since the Hinnom and Kidron valleys are included in Jeremiah’s vision, it is possible that Goah is located at the meeting place of those valleys. Alternatively, if the first hill, Gareb, is to the northeast, Goah is probably located northwest of the city. Goah may be the site of “the camp of the Assyrians” mentioned by Josephus (Jewish War 5.7.3).
