La'kum (Heb. Lakkum', לִקּוּם, according to Gesenius, way-stopper, i.e. fortified place; Sept. Λσκούμ v. r. Δωδάμ and ῎Ακρον, Vulg. Lecum), a place on the northeastern border of Naphtali, mentioned after Jabneel in the direction of the Jordan (Jos 19:33), and therefore probably situated not far south of Lake Merom. ''he Talmud (Megilloth, lxx, 1) speaks of a Lakium (לוקים), perhaps the same place (see Reland, Palest. p. 875). The site of Lakkum is possibly indicated by the ruins marked on Van de Velde's Map adjoining a small pool east of Tell-Akbarcth and south-east of Safed.
