Be'aloth (Heb. Bealoth', בּעָלוֹת, the plur. fem. of Baal, signifying prob. citizens; Sept. Βααλώθ v. r. Βαλώθ and Βαλμαινάν), the name of two places.
1. A town in the southern part of Judah (i.e. in Simeon), mentioned in connection with Telem and Hazor (Jos 15:24); evidently different from either of the two places called Baalath (ver. 9, 29), but probably the same as the BAALATH-BEER SEE BAALATH-BEER (q.v.) of chap. 19:8. Schwarz (Palest. p. 100) thinks it is a "Kulat al-Baal situated 7.5 English miles S.E. of Telem and N.W. of Zapha;" but no such names appear on any modern map, and the region indicated is entirely south of the bounds of Palestine.
2. A district of Asher, of which Baanah ben-Hushai was Solomon's commissariat (1Ki 4:16, where the Auth. Vers. renders incorrectly "in Aloth," Sept. ἐν Βααλώθ, Vulg. in Baloth); apparently = "adjacent cities," i.e. the sea-coast, where the river Beleus (Βήλεος, Joseph. War, 2, 10:2) may be a trace of the name. SEE BELUS. Schwarz (Palest. p. 237) unnecessarily identifies it with Baal-gad or Laish.
