Bible Names H-M: Laish


Laish in Easton's Bible Dictionary a lion. (1.) A city of the Sidonians, in the extreme north of Israel (Judg. 18:7, 14); called also Leshem (Josh. 19:47) and Dan (Judg. 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 (Josh. 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 (1 Sam. 25:44).

Laish in Smiths Bible Dictionary (lion), the city which was taken by the Danites, and under its new name of Dan became famous as the northern limit of the nation. Jud 18:7,14,27,29 [DAN] It was near the sources of the Jordan. In the Authorized Version Laish is again mentioned in the account of Sennacherib's march on Jerusalem. Isa 10:30 This Laish is probably the small village Laishah, lying between Gallim and Anathoth in Benjamin, and of which hitherto no traces have been found. (Fairbairn's "Imperial Bible Dictionary" suggests that it may be the present little village el-Isawiyeh, in a beautiful valley a mile northeast of Jerusalem. --ED.)

Laish Scripture - Judges 18:7 Then the five men departed, and came to Laish, and saw the people that [were] therein, how they dwelt careless, after the manner of the Zidonians, quiet and secure; and [there was] no magistrate in the land, that might put [them] to shame in [any] thing; and they [were] far from the Zidonians, and had no business with [any] man.
