jer - u - bā´al , jē̇ - rub´ā̇ - al ( ירבּעל , yerubba‛al , "let Baal contend"): The name given to Gideon by his father, Joash, and the people in recognition of his destruction of the altar of Baal at Ophrah ( Judges 6:32 ). For this name the form "Jerubbesheth" (2 Samuel 1:21 ) was substituted after the analogy of "Ishbosheth" and "Mephibosheth," in which bōsheth , the Hebrew word for "shame," displaced the word bȧ‛al , no doubt because the name resembled one given in honor of Baal. See GIDEON .
