Ba’al,

geographical. This word occurs as the prefix or suffix to the names of several places in Palestine, some of which are as follows:

  1. BAAL a town of Simeon, named only in (1 Chronicles 4:33) which from the parallel list in (Joshua 19:8) seems to have been identical with BAALATH-BEER.
  2. BAALAH (mistress ). A. Another name for KIRJATH-JEARIM, or KIRJATH BAAL, the well-known town now Kuriet el Enab . (Joshua 15:9,10; 1 Chronicles 13:6) b. A town in the south of Judah, (Joshua 15:29) which in Josh 19:3 Is called BALAH, and in the parallel list, (1 Chronicles 4:29) BILHAH.
  3. BAALATH (mistress ), a town of Dan named with Gibbethon, Gath-rim-mon and other Philistine places. (Joshua 19:44)
  4. BAALATH-BEER (lord of the well ). BAAL 1, a town among those in the south part of Judah, given to Simeon, which also bore the name of RAMATH-NEGEB, or "the height of the south." (Joshua 19:8)
  5. BAAL-GAD (lord of fortune ), used to denote the most northern, (Joshua 11:17; 12:7) or perhaps northwestern, (Joshua 13:5) point to which Joshua’s victories extended. It was in all probability a Phoenician or Canaanite sanctuary of Baal under the aspect of Gad or Fortune.
  6. BAAL-HAMON (lord of a multitude ), a place at which Solomon had a vineyard, evidently of great extent. (Solomon 8:11)
  7. BAAL-HAZOR (village of Baal ), a place where Absalom appears to have had a sheep-farm, and where Amnon was murdered. (2 Samuel 13:23)
  8. MOUNT BAAL-HERMON (Lord of Hermon ), (Judges 3:3) and simply Baal-hermon. (1 Chronicles 5:23) This is usually considered as a distinct place from Mount Hermon; but we know that this mountain had at least three names ( 3:9) and Baal-hermon may have been a fourth in use among the Phoenician worshippers.
  9. BAAL-MEON (lord of the house ), one of the towns which were built by the Reubenites. (Numbers 32:38) It also occurs in (1 Chronicles 5:8) and on each occasion with Nebo. In the time of Ezekiel it was Moabite, one of the cities which were the "glory of the country." (Ezekiel 25:9)
  10. BAAL-PERAZIM (lord of divisions ), the scene of a victory of David over the Philistines, and of a great destruction of their images. (2 Samuel 5:20; 1 Chronicles 14:11) See (Isaiah 28:21) where it is called MOUNT PERAZIM.
  11. BAAL-SHALISHA (lord of Shalisha ), a place named only in (2 Kings 4:42) apparently not far from Gilgal; comp. (2 Kings 4:38)
  12. BAAL-TAMAR (lord of the palm tree ), a place named only in (Judges 20:33) as near Gibeah of Benjamin. The palm tree (tamar ) of Deborah, (Judges 4:5) was situated somewhere in the locality, and is possibly alluded to.
  13. BAAL-ZEPHON (lord of the north ), a place in Egypt near where the Israelites crossed the Red Sea. (Numbers 33:7; Ezekiel 14:2,9) We place Baal-zephon on the western shore of the Gulf of Suez, a little below its head, which at that time was about 30 or 40 miles northward of the Present head.
