It is likely just a simple possession indicator with no directional intent.
The preposition L was a common possession indicator as can be seen on jar
handles and other items like that. See Muraoka par. 130b. He cites the
examples: I Sam 16:18, Gen 14:18,36:12 and many others.

Dear Friends,

I'm just reading Jeremiah and came to Chap. 30,12. I don't understand the
function of the Preposition "Le" in "LeSHiBhReKH" (your bruise).
Can anyone help me ?
