("stopping the way".) On Naphtali's boundary, between Jabneel and Jordan (Joshua 19:33). E. Wilton makes Lakum to be E. of Jordan; for Deuteronomy 33:23, "possess thou "the sea" (yam) and the sunny district" (Speaker's Commentary Darom, E. Wilton "the circuit"), may imply, Naphtali possessed the entire basin, shut in by mountains, which contained the upper Jordan and lakes Merom and Tiberius. Josephus says Naphtali included the eastern parts. Tubariyeh (Tiberius) includes the E. as well as W. of the lake. E. Wilton identifies Lakum with Arkub E. of the lake. The meaning of Lakum accords, rugged rocks stopping the way along the S.E. shore. However, Lt. Conder identifies Lakum with Kefr Kama (Israel Exploration Quarterly Statement, January, 1878, p. 19).
