Baal-hazor

In Bible versions:

Baal-Hazor: TEV
a town of Ephraim 4 km NE of Bethel

Baal-hazor [EBD]

having a courtyard, or Baal's village, the place on the borders of Ephraim and Benjamin where Absalom held the feast of sheep-shearing when Amnon was assassinated (2 Sam. 13:23). Probably it is the same with Hazor (Neh. 11:33), now Tell' Asur, 5 miles north-east of Bethel.

Baal-hazor [NAVE]

BAAL-HAZOR, the place where Amnon was slain, 2 Sam. 13:23.

BAAL-HAZOR [ISBE]

BAAL-HAZOR - ba-al-ha'-zor ba`al chatsor; Bailasor, Bel-la-sor): A place on the property of Absalom where his sheep-shearers were gathered, beside Ephraim (2 Sam 13:23). The sheep-shearing was evidently the occasion of a festival which was attended by Absalom's brethren. Here he compassed the death of Amnon in revenge for the outrage upon his sister. The place may be identified with Tell `Asur, a mountain which rises 3,318 ft. above the sea, 4 miles Northeast of Bethel.rine Kubbet el Baul may retain the old name.
