LAISHAH lā’ ə shə (לַ֖יְשָׁה). A village of Benjamin, NE of Jerusalem; named in Isaiah 10:30 (KJV LAISH) with Gallim and Anathoth. The site is possibly the same as the modern el-Isawiyeh.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

la-i’-sha, la’-ish-a (layshah, the King James Version, Laish): A place named in Isa 10:30 with Gallim and Anathoth. It should apparently be sought on the North of Jerusalem. Some would identify Gallim with Beit Jala, near Bethlehem. Conder suggests `Isawiyeh on the eastern slope, to the North-Northeast of the Mount of Olives.
