Bal'amo (rather Bel'amon, Βελαμών, v. r. Bal'amon, Βαλαμών), a place named in the Apocrypha (Jud. 8:3) as not far from Dothaim (Dothar), and usually supposed to be the same as the Belmen of Judith 4:4, and the ABEL- MAIM SEE ABEL-MAIM (q.v.) of Scripture. Reland (Palest. p. 615, 622) inclines, however, to identify it with the Belemoth (Βελεμώθ) stated by Epiphanius (Vit. Prophetarum, p. 244) to have been the native place of the prophet Hosea, and called Belemon (Βελεμών) in the Pachal Chronicle.
