Resource Toolbox
Additional Links

In the Hebrew language, Ashtaroth was the plural form of Ashtoreth. The Ashtaroth were among the Canaanite and Phoenician goddesses that proved to be such a temptation to the Israelites. Although a Baal was a male god and an Ashtoreth a female god, the two are often linked to represent the religion commonly known as Baalism (Judges 2:13; 1 Samuel 12:10; 1 Kings 11:6). For details see BAAL.
