(ehl-behth' uhl) Place name meaning, “god of the house of El (god).” Either Bethel or place in or near Bethel, where Jacob built an altar to God as memorial to his previous visit to Bethel, when he had seen a vision of God (Genesis 35:7 ; compare Genesis 28:10-19 ). Apparently the name used for God was used as a place name. See God of the Fathers .
