A city on the border of Benjamin in the wilderness (Joshua 18:12 ), east of Bethel (Joshua 7:2 ) and west of Michmash (1Samuel 13:5 ). It was the scene of a battle between Saul and the Philistines, in which the latter were defeated (1Samuel 14:23 ).

In Hosea 4:15 , 5:8,10:5, Beth-aven is probably a disguise for Beth-el, particularly in 10:5, where calves of Beth-aven as objects of idolatry are mentioned.
