Easton's Bible Dictionary

Baalah:

mistress; city. (1.) A city in the south of Judah (Jos 15:29), elsewhere called Balah (Jos 19:3) and Bilhah (1Ch 4:29). Now Khurbet Zebalah.

(2.) A city on the northern border of the tribe of Judah (Jos 15:10), called also Kirjath-jearim, q.v. (15:9; 1Ch 13:6), now Kuriet-el-Enab, or as some think, 'Erma.

(3.) A mountain on the north-western boundary of Judah and Dan (Jos 15:11).

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Baalah:

her idol; she that is governed or subdued; a spouse

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Baalah:

ba'-a-la ba‘alah; ("possessor," "mistress "): Three occurrences of this name:

(1) = KIRIATH-JEARIM (which see) (Jos 15:9,10; 1Ch 13:6).

(2) A city in the Negeb of Judah (Jos 15:29). In Jos 19:3 Balah and in 1Ch 4:29 Bilhah; perhaps also Boaloth of Jos 15:24. The site is unknown; but see PEF, III, 26.

(3) Mount Baalah (Jos 15:11), a mountain ridge between Shikkeron (Ekron) and Jabnoel unless, as seems probable, the suggestion of M. Clermont-Ganneau (Rev. Crit, 1897, 902) is correct that for har ( ="mount"), we should read nahar ("river"). In this case the border in question would be the Nahr rubin. Here there is an annual feast held-attended by all classes and famous all over Syria-which appears to be a real survival of "Baal worship."

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Baalah:

SEE [BAAL, 5.2.].
