bā´a -lath -bē´ẽr בּעלת בּאר , ba‛alath be'ēr "lady (mistress) of the well"; Joshua 19:8 (in 1 Chronicles 4:33 , Baal)): In Josh this place is designated "Ramah of the South," i.e. of the Negeb, while in 1 Samuel 30:27 it is described as Ramoth of the Negeb. It must have been a prominent hill ( rāmāh = "height") in the far south of the Negeb and near a well (be'ēr ). The site is unknown though Conder suggests that the shrine Kubbet el Baul may retain the old name.
