bā´al -hûr´mon ( בּעל חרמון , , Baál Ermō̇n ): Baalgad under Mount Hermon is described as "toward the sunrising" in Joshua 13:5 . If Mount Lebanon proper is here intended the reading may be taken as correct. But in Judges 3:3 Baal-gad is replaced by Baal-hermon. One or the other must be due to a scribal error. The Baal-hermon of 1 Chronicles 5:23 lay somewhere East of the Jordan, near to Mount Hermon. It may possibly be identical with Bāniās .
