Ba´al-Ha´zor, the place where Absalom kept his flocks, and held his sheep-shearing feast (2 Samuel 13:23). It is said to have been 'beside Ephraim,' not in the tribe of that name, but near the city called Ephraim which was in the tribe of Judah, and is mentioned in 2 Chronicles 13:19, John 11:54. This Ephraim is placed by Eusebius eight miles from Jerusalem on the road to Jericho; and is supposed by Reland to have been between Bethel and Jericho.
