(bay' uhl-beerihth) In Judges 8:33 , a Canaanite deity whom the Israelites began to worship following the death of Gideon. The name means “lord of covenant,” and the god's temple was located at Shechem. The precise identity of this deity cannot be determined. The designation, “lord of covenant,” may mean that a covenant between the Israelites and the Shechemites was agreed to and annually renewed in his shrine. See Shechem .
