(bay' uhl-mee' uhn) Place name meaning, “lord of the residence” or “Baal of the residence.” City tribe of Reuben built east of Jordan (Numbers 32:36 ), probably on the tribe's northern border. Mesha, king of Moab about 830 B.C., claims to have rebuilt Baal-meon, meaning he had captured it from Israel at that date. Ezekiel 25:9 pronounces judgment on Baal-meon as a city of Moab about the time of the Exile in 587. Baal-meon is located at modern Main, ten miles southwest of Heshbon and ten miles east of the Dead Sea.
