From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Northward
    (Heb. tsaphon), a "hidden" or "dark place," as opposed to the
    sunny south (Deut. 3:27). A Hebrew in speaking of the points of
    the compass was considered as always having his face to the
    east, and hence "the left hand" (Gen. 14:15; Job 23:9) denotes
    the north. The "kingdoms of the north" are Chaldea, Assyria,
    Media, etc.
