bā -al -tā´mar בּעל תּמר , ba‛al tāmār ; Βαὰλ Θαμάρ , Baál Thamár , "Baal of the palm tree"): Evidently a seat of heathen worship (Judges 20:33 ) between Bethel and Gibeah (compare Judges 20:18 , Judges 20:31 ). The place was known to Eusebius (Onomasticon , which see), but trace of the name is now lost. Conder suggests that it may be connected with the palm tree of Deborah (Judges 4:5 ) which was between Bethel and Ramah (HDB , under the word).
