Baal (3)Baal Hazor
 
Baal Gad

A Canaanite sanctuary of Baal, as "the lord of fortune." The N.W. limit of Joshua's victories, as Hamath was the N.E. limit (Joshua 11:17; Joshua 12:7; Joshua 13:5). "Under mount Hermon, in the valley of Lebanon," still retaining the Hebrew name for "the valley," 'el buka, between Lebanon and Antilebanon. Probably now Banias, at the fountain which is one of the Jordan's sources, formerly a sanctuary of Pan. Baalbek ("the city of the sun") is situated too far N. at the lowest declivity of Antilibanus to be identified with Baal.
