Northward - (Easton's Bible Dictionary)

(Heb. tsaphon), a "hidden" or "dark place," as opposed to the sunny south (Deut. 3:27). A Hebrew in speaking of the points of the compass was considered as always having his face to the east, and hence "the left hand" (Gen. 14:15; Job 23:9) denotes the north. The "kingdoms of the north" are Chaldea, Assyria, Media, etc.

Northward - (Webster's 1828 Dictionary)

NORTH'WARD, a. Being towards the north, or nearer to the north than to the east and west points.

NORTH'WARD, adv. Towards the north, or towards a point nearer to the north than the east and west points.
