BAAL-BERITH (‘lord of the covenant’). The god of Shechem, where he had a temple ( Judges 8:33 ; Judges 9:4 ); called also El-berith ( Judges 9:46 ). The ‘covenant’ may be that amongst the Canaanite peoples or that between Canaanltes and Israelites; or the title may be parallel to Zeus Horkios , the god who presides over covenants.
