A compass rose with south highlighted

South is one of the cardinal directions and is opposite to the north.

By Western convention, the bottom side of a map is south; the southern direction has azimuth or bearing of 180°.

True south is the direction towards the southern end of the axis about which the earth rotates, called the South Pole and located in Antarctica. Magnetic south is the direction towards the west magnetic pole, some distance away from the south geographic pole.

On any rotating object the side appearing to rotate clockwise when viewed from afar may be called its southern side.

Heb. Negeb, that arid district to the south of Palestine through which lay the caravan route from Central Palestine to Egypt (Gen 12:9; 13:1, 3; 46:1-6). "The Negeb comprised a considerable but irregularly-shaped tract of country, its main portion stretching from the mountains and lowlands of Judah in the north to the mountains of Azazemeh in the south, and from the Dead Sea and southern Ghoron the east to the Mediterranean on the west." In Ezek 20:46 (21:1 in Heb.) three different Hebrew words are all rendered "south." (1) "Set thy face toward the south" (Teman, the region on the right, 1Sam 33:24); (2) "Drop thy word toward the south" (Negeb, the region of dryness, Josh 15:4); (3) "Prophesy against the forest of the south field" (Darom, the region of brightness, Deut 33:23). In Job 37:9 the word "south" is literally "chamber," used here in the sense of treasury (comp. 38:22; Ps 1357). This verse is rendered in the Revised Version "out of the chamber of the south."
