Lasha
The furthest limit of the territory of Canaan travelling inward from the Mediterranean Sea: possibly near the south-eastern shore of the Dead Sea. (Genesis 10:19).
Lavan
A locality in the Paran area where Moses addressed the Israelites (Deuteronomy 1:1). It is sometimes linked to Livnah in Numbers 33:20. Some rabbinical scholars posit Lavan as the site of Korach's rebellion, others identify Lavan with the place where the Israelites expressed their dissatisfaction with the manna (Numbers 11:6).
Level Valley (Emek Shaveh)
Also known as the King's Valley, this is the place where the king of Sodom greeted the victorious Chedorlaomer (Genesis 14:17).
Livnah
An encampment of the Israelites in the Wilderness, mentioned at Numbers 33:20-21, and possibly the same as the Lavan mentioned at Deuteronomy 1:1.
Lookout Field
A hilly area probably close to Mount Nebo, where the Moabite king Balak took Balaam to make him curse the Israelite people (Numbers 23:14).
Lord-of-the-North, Baal Tzafon
A place somewhere on the Egyptian eastern delta near which the Israelites camped in order to confuse Pharoah, as God had instructed Moses (Exodus 14:2). It has been suggested variously that it may have been either at Tel Dafne, 43 km south-west of Port Said, Ras Kasrun near Lake Serbonis, or Jebu el Chasan, 8 miles north of the Gulf of Suez.
Luz
The original name of Bethel (Genesis 28:19).
