Beth-pa'let (Heb. Beyth Pellet, בֵּית פֶּלֶט, house of escape, but found only "in pause," Beyth Pallet, בֵּית פּ לֶט [or בֵּיתאּ]; Sept. Βηθφέλεθ and Βηθφαλάτ or Βαιθφαλάθ), one of the towns in the extreme south of Judah (i.e. assigned to Simeon), named between Heshmon and Hazar-shual (Jos 15:27), and inhabited after the captivity (Ne 11:26, where it is Anglicized "Beth-phelet"). It corresponds possibly to the "considerable ruin" on Tell el-Kuseifeh (Robinson's Researches, 2, 620), a short distance N.E. of Moladah (Van de Velde, Map).
