bā -al -pē̇ -rā´zim , bā -al -per´azim בּעל־פרצים , ba‛al perācı̄m ; Βααλ'φαρασείν , Baal 'pharaseı́n , "the lord of breakings through"): The spot in or near the Valley of Rephaim where David obtained a signal victory over the Philistines; it was higher than Jerusalem for David asked, "Shall I go up against the Philis?" (2 Samuel 5:20 ; 1 Chronicles 14:11 ). The exact site is unknown, but if the Vale of Rephaim is el Beka‛a , the open valley between Jerusalem and Mar Elias, then Baal-perazim would probably be the mountains to the East near what is called the "Mount of Evil Counsel" (see JERUSALEM ). The Mount Perazim of Isaiah 28:21 would appear to be the same spot.
