[many Ir'nahash] (Heb. Ir-Nachash', עַיר נָתָשׁ , serpent city; Sept. πόλις Ναᾶς, Vulig. urbs Naas, Auth. Vers. margin, "city of Nahash"), a place founded (rebuilt) by Tehinnah, the son of Eshton, of the tribe of Judah (1 Chronicles 4:12). Schwarz (Palest. p. 116) thinks it the present Dir- Nachas, one mile east of Beth-Jibrin; prob. the same marked (perh. inaccurately) Dar-Hakhas on Zimmerman's map, a short distance north- east of Beit-Jibrin. Van de Velde likewise identifies it with "Deir-Nakhaz, a village with ancient remains east of Beit-Jibrin" (Memoir, p. 322). SEE NAHASH.
