Easton's Bible Dictionary

Laish:

a lion. (1.) A city of the Sidonians, in the extreme north of Palestine (Jdg 18:7,14); called also Leshem (Jos 19:47) and Dan (Jdg 18:7,29; Jer 8:16). It lay near the sources of the Jordan, about 4 miles from Paneas. The restless and warlike tribe of Dan (q.v.), looking out for larger possessions, invaded this country and took Laish with its territory. It is identified with the ruin Tell-el-Kady, "the mound of the judge," to the north of the Waters of Merom (Jos 11:5).

(2.) A place mentioned in Isa 10:30. It has been supposed to be the modern el-Isawiyeh, about a mile north-east of Jerusalem.

(3.) The father of Phalti (1Sa 25:44).
