Aloth

ALOTH (ā'lŏth, Heb. ‘ālôth). A town or district mentioned with Asher and of which Baanah was Solomon’s commissary (1Kgs.4.16). ASV has Bealoth.


ALOTH. KJV form of Bealoth.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

So found in the King James Version and the Revised Version, margin in 1Ki 4:16, where the Revised Version (British and American) has BEALOTH (be`aloth). A town, or district in northern Palestine, together with Asher under Baana, one of Solomon’s twelve civil officers. Conder identifies with the ruin `Alia, near Achzib. There was another Bealoth in southern Palestine (Jos 15:24). The difference in the form of the word in the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) is due to interpretation of the initial "b" as the preposition "in" in the former, and as part of the word itself in the latter.
