Halak

Meaning: smooth; bald

a hill at the southern extremity of Canaan (Josh. 11:17)

It is referred to as if it were a landmark in that direction, being prominent and conspicuous from a distance. It has by some been identified with the modern Jebel el-Madura, on the south frontier of Judah, between the south end of the Dead Sea and the Wady Gaian.
