(Heb. Bealoth', בְּעָלוֹת , the plur. fem. of Baal, signifying prob. Citizens; Sept. Βααλώθ v. r. Βαλώθ and Βαλμαινάν ), the name of two places.

1. A town in the southern part of Judah (i.e. in Simeon), mentioned in connection with Telem and Hazor ( Joshua 15:24); evidently different from either of the two places called Baalath ( Joshua 15:9;  Joshua 15:29), but probably the same as the BAALATH-BEER (See Baalath-Beer) (q.v.) of chap. 19:8. Schwarz (Palest. p. 100) thinks it is a "Kulat al-Baal situated 7.5 English miles S.E. of Telem and N.W. of Zapha;" but no such names appear on any modern map, and the region indicated is entirely south of the bounds of Palestine.

2. A district of Asher, of which Baanah ben-Hushai was Solomon's commissariat ( 1 Kings 4:16, where the Auth. Vers. renders incorrectly "in Aloth," Sept. Ἐν Βααλώθ , Vulg. In Baloth ) ; apparently = "adjacent Cities, " i.e. the sea-coast, where the river Beleus ( Βήλεος , Joseph. War, 2, 10:2) may be a trace of the name. (See Belus). Schwarz ( Palest. p. 237) unnecessarily identifies it with Baal-gad or Laish.
