From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
   Northward
      (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.
