A lion.
  • A city of the Sidonians, in the extreme north of Palestine (Judges 18:7,14 ); called also Leshem (Joshua 19:47 ) and Dan (Judges 18:7,29 ; Jeremiah 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 (Joshua 11:5 ).

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

  • The father of Phalti (1 Samuel 25:44 ).
