 Laish
    a lion. (1.) A city of the Sidonians, in the extreme north of
    Palestine (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).
