And they buried him in the territory of his inheritance in Timnath-heres in the hill country of Ephraim, north of the mountain of Gaash. Bible see other translations

“Timnath-heres.” The city is called Timnath-sereh in the book of Joshua (Josh. 19:50; 24:30).

“north of the mountain of Gaash.” The sense is that Joshua was buried to the north (but likely close to) the mountain of Gaash. The burial would never be in the city because touching a tomb made a person unclean.
