Baal-Hamon

Additional Links

A place mentioned in Song of Solomon 8:11, in which passage Solomon is said to have had a vineyard there: its identity is unknown. Graetz proposes to read "Baal-hermon" for "Baalhamon"; but this is mere conjecture. Balamon (Judith 8:3), with which Delitzsch and others have sought to identify it, is apparently the Old Testament Ibleam, or Bileam, and the modern Bel'ame, a moderately fruitful valley south of the great plain of Jezreel. Bickell and Cheyne eliminate the word, to preserve the meter.
