Covenant lord, the name of the god worshipped in Shechem after the death of Gideon (Judges 8:33 ; 9:4 ). In 9:46 he is called simply "the god Berith." The name denotes the god of the covenant into which the Israelites entered with the Canaanites, contrary to the command of Jehovah (Exodus 34:12 ), when they began to fall away to the worship of idols.
