Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חֶרֶשׁ m.

(1)  work of an artificer. Hence גֵּי חֲרֶשִׁים the valley of craftsmen near Jerusalem, 1 Chronicles 4:14; Nehemiah 11:33.

(2) an artifice, used in a bad sense of magic arts, like the Syr. ܚܰܪܫܳܐ, ܚܶܪܫܳܐ, compare ܚܰܪܳܫܐܳ Chaldee חֶרָשׁ a magician, an enchanter. Isaiah 3:3, חֲכַס חֲרָשִׁים, “one skilled in artifices,” i.e. in magic: there follows נְבוֹן לַחַשׁ a skilful enchanter. So Ch.; on the other hand LXX., Vulg., Syr., Saad. understand, a skilfud workman.

(3) silence (root No. 4), and adv. silently, Joshua 2:1.

(4) [Heresh], pr.n. of a man, 1 Chronicles 9:15.
