🔼The name Baalath in the Bible
There are two towns named Baalath in the Bible:
🔼Etymology of the name Baalath
The name Baalath comes from the root-verb בעל (ba'al):
Our name is either a contracted version of the not occurring name בעלות, Baaloth, which is the plural of the feminine noun בעלה (ba'ala), meaning mistress. Or it is the same as that noun, but spelled in a form of Hebrew that is older than the Hebrew in which the Bible was written.
For a meaning of the name Baalath, NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads the singular Mistress, and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names proposes the singular Lady. BDB Theological Dictionary does not translate this name but does list it under בעל. BDB also doesn't call this name a plural, as it does with Baaloth.
