Baal Shalishah

BAAL SHALISHAH (bā'ăl shăl'ĭ-sha, Heb. ba‘al shālīshâh, Baal of Shalishah). A place in Ephraim from which bread and corn were brought to Elisha when he was at Gilgal (2Kgs.4.42-2Kgs.4.44).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

ba-al-shal’-i-sha, ba-al-shale-’sha ba`al shalishah; Baithsarisa: Whence a man came to Gilgal with first-fruits (2Ki 4:42) was probably not far from the latter place. According to the Talmud (Sanh. 12a) the fruits of the earth nowhere ripened so quickly. It is called by Eusebius Baithsarith (Jerome "Bethsalisa"), and located 15 miles North of Diospolis (Lydda). Khirbet Sirisia almost exactly fits this description. Gilgal (Jiljulieh) lies in the plain about 4 1/2 miles to the Northwest Khirbet Kefr Thilth, 3 1/2 miles farther north, has also been suggested. The Arabic Thilth exactly corresponds to the Hebrew Shalishah.
