a rejoicing; our proud lord
[BAAL, Nos. 3,4]
ba'-a-lath 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 (Joshua 19:44) associated with Eltekeh and Gibbethon--possibly Bela`in.
