Easton's Bible Dictionary - Lasha
Fissure, a place apparently east of the Dead Sea (Genesis 10:19 ). It was afterwards known as Callirhoe, a place famous for its hot springs.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Lasha
Genesis 10:19; the S.E. limit of Canaan = Callirhoe, famed for warm springs, E. of the Dead Sea. Lasha means "fissure," appropriate to the chasm Zerka Main, through which the Callirhoe waters find an outlet to the sea. E. Wilton (Imperial Dictionary) suggests that (See LAISH at the Jordan's sources is Lasha, for the Canaanites probably had no settlement E. of the Dead Sea. The N.W. bound (Sidon), the S.W. (Gaza), and the S.E. (Sodom) being given, we naturally expect the N.E., which Laish is (Genesis 10:19); the spies found the Canaanites dwelling "by the side of the Jordan" (Numbers 13:29), probably therefore at its sources at Laish. Laish moreover was connected with Canaanite Sidon, though far from it (Judges 18:7; Judges 18:28). The gorge of wady el Asal, descending from Mount Hermon over against Laish, between two high bulwarks, fulfills the requirements of the derivation. Asal also is the inversion of Lasha.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Lasha
(lay' sshuh) Place name of uncertain meaning. A point on the original border of Canaan (Genesis 10:19 ). The traditional location is at Kallirhoe east of the Dead Sea; others identify it with Nuhashe or Laash in northern Syria near Hamath. The exact meaning of the prepositions and the direction of the borders are not clear.



Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Lasha
LASHA ( Genesis 10:19 marked the S.E. boundary of the land of the Canaanites. Jerome identified it with the hot springs of Callirrhoë, in the Wâdy Zerqâ Ma‘în . Wellhausen would identify it with Laish, on the N. frontier. There is nothing to support this but the resemblance in the name. Against it is the order in which the names occur. It cannot now be identified.
