(bay' uhl-sshal' ih' sshah) Place name meaning, “Baal of Shalishah” or “lord of Shalishah.” Home of unnamed man who brought firstfruits to Elisha, who used them to feed a hundred men (2 Kings 4:42-44 ). The “land of Shalishah” was evidently in the tribal territory of Ephraim (1 Samuel 9:4 ). Baal-shalishah may be modern Kefr Thilth, twenty miles southwest of Shechem. See Shalishah.
