Joshua 10:31  (King James Version)
And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, unto Lachish, and encamped against it, and fought against it:

Lachish was also situated in the south of Judah, seven miles south from Eleutheropolis, according to Eusebius and Jerome. It appears to have been anciently a very strong place; for though the people were panic struck, and the Israelites flushed with success, yet Joshua could not reduce it till the second day; and the king of Assyria afterwards was obliged to raise the siege.
