La´chish, a city in the south of Judah, in the plain between Adoraim and Azekah (; ; ; ). It was rebuilt and fortified by Rehoboam (), and seems after that time to have been regarded as one of the strongest fortresses of the kingdom of Judah, having for a time braved the assaults of the Assyrian army under Sennacherib (; ; ). Eusebius and Jerome place it seven Roman miles from Eleutheropolis towards the south. There has not been any more recent notice of the place, and no modern, vestige of the name or site has been discovered.
