Ethbaal

Ethbaal [N] [H]

(with Baal ), king of Sidon and father of Jezebel. ( 1 Kings 16:31 ) Josephus represents him as a king of the Tyrians as well as of the Sidonians. We may thus identify him with Eithobalus, who, after having assassinated Pheles, usurped the throne of Tyre for thirty-two years. The date of Ethbaals reign may be given as about B.C. 940-908.
