Baal (2)

ba'-al ba`al, "lord," "master," "possessor"):

See a list of verses on BAAL in the Bible.

(1) A descendant of Reuben, Jacob's first-born son, and the father of Beerah, prince of the Reubenitcs, "whom Tiglath-pileser (1Ch 5:5-6) king of Assyria carried away captive."

(2) The fourth of ten sons of Jeiel (King James Version "Jehiel"), father and founder of Gibeon. His mother was Maacah; his brother Kish father oœ Saul (1Ch 8:29 f; 1Ch 9:35-36,39; compare 1Sa 14:50 f). These passages identify Jeiel and Abiel as the father of Kish and thus of Baal. For study of confusions in the genealogical record, in 1Ch 9:36,39, see KISH; ABIEL; JEIEL.

See the definition of baal in the KJV Dictionary

(3) In composition often the name of a man and not of the heathen god, e.g. Baal-hanan, a king of Edom (Ge 36:38; 1Ch 1:49); also a royal prefect of the same name (1Ch 27:28). Gesenius thinks that Baal in compound words rarely refers to the god by that name.

See BAAL(deity).

(4) A city of the tribe of Simeon (1Ch 4:33).
