(Heb. Chadashah', חֲדָשָׁה , new; Sept. Ἀδασά v.r. Ἀδασάν ), a city in the valley of Judah, mentioned in the second group between Zenan and Migdal-gad (Joshua 15:37). It has generally been thought (Winer, Realw. s.v.) to be the same with the Adasa ( Accaas) of Josephus (Ant. 12, 10, 5) and the Apocrypha (1 Macc. 8:40, 45), and likewise of the Onomasticon (s.v.), which, however, must have lain rather in the mountains of Ephraim, apparently near the modern village Surda. (See ADASA). Schwarz (Phys. Descript. of Pal. p. 103) inclines to identify it with a little village el-Chadas, stated by him to lie between Migdal and Ashkelon, the el-Jora of Van de Velde's Map. According to the Mishna (Erub. 5, 6), it anciently contained 50 houses only (Reland, Palaest. p. 701). (See JUDAH, TRIBE OF).
