Ba'jith (Heb. with the art. hab-ba'yith, הִבִּיַת, the house), taken by some to be the name of a city in Moab, where there may have been a celebrated idol temple. It occurs in the prophecy against Moab (Isa 15:2): "He is gone up to Bajith and to Dibon, the high places, to weep," which passage is thus interpreted by Bishop Lowth: "He is used for the people of Moab. Bajith and Dibon are in the Chaldee and Syriac versions made into the name of one place, Beth-Dibon. Beth [i.e. Bajith] may signify the house or temple of an idol." The Sept. has Λυπεῖσθε ἑφ᾿ ἑαυτούς, Vulg. Ascendit domus. Gesenius (Comment. zu Jesa. in loc.) understands it as referring, not to a place of this name, but to the "temple" of the false gods of Moab, as opposed to the "high places" in the same sentence (comp. 16:12). The allusion has been supposed to be to Beth-Baalmeon, or Beth-diblathaim, which are named in Jer 48:22, as here, with Dibon and Nebo. In this view Henderson (Comment. in loc.) coincides. SEE BAMOTH.
