A place situated at the northern limit of Palestine, in the valley of Lebanon, near Mount Hermon (Joshua 11:17, 12:7, 13:5). Since 1 Chronicles 5:23 mentions Baal-hermon as the northern limit of the tribe of Manasseh, it has been supposed that Baal-gad and Baal-hermon are identical. This conjecture is quite possible, and more plausible than that of Gesenius, Raumer, Robinson, and others, according to whom Baal-gad (Hermon) is identical with the later celebrated Paneas (BÃ¢niÃ¢s); for Paneas can hardly be said to lie in the valley of Lebanon. Others have connected Baal-gad with á¸¤Ã¢á¹£bÃªjÃ¢ in the Biá¸³a'.
