Bamoth, Bamoth-Baal
Hebrew - Bamoth-baal
Hebrew - Bamoth-baal

("high places of Baal.") (Joshua 13:17, called "Bamoth in the valley" Numbers 21:20; Numbers 22:41.) Baal Meon or Beth Baal Meon was near, sacred to the same idol. Bajith, "the temple," in close proximity to Bamoth, "high places:" Isaiah 15:2.) (See BAJITH.) Beth Bamoth occurs on the Moabite stone. Mesha says, on the stone, he rebuilt Beth Bamoth, it having been probably destroyed in the struggles between Moab and Reuben or Gad. Israel's halt at Bamoth is identical with that in Numbers 33:45, connected with Dibon Gad, for Dibon and Bamoth Baal were near (Joshua 13:17). Bamoth was "in the valley" or ravine (Numbers 21:20). In the wady Waleh, two miles N. of Dibon, a detached knoll on the right bank of the rivulet contains a quadrangle of rude stones put together without cement; this was one of the Bamoth or high places; others, whence Balsam could have seen Israel, were probably to the W., where are the ruins Keraum Abu el Hossein, or on jebel Attarus.
