Bamoth-Baal

Additional Links

(Heb. Bamoth'- Ba'al, בִּעִל בָּמוֹתאּ , heights of Baal; Sept. Βαμὼθ Βάαλ v.r. Βαιμὼν Βάαλ, and αἰ στέλαι τοῦ Βάαλ ), or, as the margin of our version reads, "the high places of Baal", (See BAAL), a place given to the tribe of Reuben, and situated on the river Arnon, or in the plain through which that stream flows, east of the Jordan (Joshua 13:17; comp. Numbers 21:28; Numbers 22:41; not Jeremiah 32:35). It is probably the same place elsewhere (Numbers 21:19) called simply BAMOTH (See BAMOTH) (q. v ). Knobel (Comment. in loc.) identifies it with the modern Jebel Attarus, a site marked by stone-heaps observed both by Seetzen (2. 342) and Burckhardt (Syria, p. 370); but this is rather the summit of Nebo.
