HAROSHETH-HA-GOIIM hə rō’ shĕth hə goi’-ĭm (חֲרֹ֥שֶׁת הַגּוֹיִ֖ם). A Canaanite town, the home of Sisera, from which he led his forces against Deborah and Barak (Judg 4:13), and to which his defeated army fled after his defeat (v. 16). Its exact location is unknown, but attempts have been made to identify it with Tell ’Amr and with Tell el-Harbaj. It is also possible that it is the Muhrashti of the Amarna Letters, and that it was therefore in the Plain of Sharon.
