Baalath

BAALATH (bā'ălăth, Heb ba‘allāth). A town in Dan (Josh.19.44) and a store city of Solomon (1Kgs.9.18; 1Chr.8.6). In Josh.15.9 it is identified with Kiriath Jearim.


BAALATH (see Baalah, 4 and 5).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

ba`alath; (A, Baalon): between Shikkeron (Ekron) and Jabnoel unless, as seems probable, the suggestion of M. Clermont-Ganneau (Rev. Crit, 1897, 902) is correct that for har ( = "mount"), we should read nahar ("river"). In this case the border in question would be the Nahr rubin. Here there is an annual feast held--attended by all classes and famous all over Syria--which appears to be a real survival of "Baal worship."

(1) A town on the border of Da (Jos 19:44) associated with Eltekeh and Gibbethon--possibly Bela`in.

(2) ("Mistress-ship"): A store city of Solomon, mentioned with Beth-horon (1Ki 9:18; 2Ch 8:6) and possibly the same as (1).
