[BAAL, Nos. 3,4]


BAALATH - ba'-a-lath ba`alath; A, Baalon):between Shikkeron (Ekron) and Jabnoel unless, as seems probable, the suggestion of M. Clermont-Ganneau (Rev. Crit, 1897, 902) is correct that for har ( = "mount"), we should read nahar ("river"). In this case the border in question would be the Nahr rubin. Here there is an annual feast held--attended by all classes and famous all over Syria--which appears to be a real survival of "Baal worship."

(1) A town on the border of Dan (Josh 19:44) associated with Eltekeh and Gibbethon--possibly Bela`in.

(2) ("Mistress-ship"): A store city of Solomon, mentioned with Beth-horon (1 Ki 9:18; 2 Ch 8:6) and possibly the same as (1).


BAALATH-BEER - ba'-a-lath-be'-er ba`alath be'er "lady (mistress) of the well"; Josh 19:8 (in 1 Ch 4:33, Baal)): In Josh this place is designated "Ramah of the South," i.e. of the Negeb, while in 1 Sam 30:27 it is described as Ramoth of the Negeb. It must have been a prominent hill (ramah = "height") in the far south of the Negeb and near a well be'er. The site is unknown though Conder suggests that the shrine Kubbet el Baul may retain the old name.
