bā -al -hā´zor ( בּעל חצור , ba‛al ḥācōr ; Βαιλασώρ , Bailasō̇r , Βελλασώρ , Bel -la -sō̇r ): A place on the property of Absalom where his sheep-shearers were gathered, beside Ephraim (2 Samuel 13:23 ). The sheep-shearing was evidently the occasion of a festival which was attended by Absalom's brethren. Here he compassed the death of Amnon in revenge for the outrage upon his sister. The place may be identified with Tell ‛Aṣūr , a mountain which rises 3, 318 ft. above the sea, 4 miles Northeast of Bethel.
