Merib-baal in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
mer-ib-ba'-al (meribhba`al; also meri-bha`al, "Baal
contends"): The spelling varies in a single verse; 1 Ch 9:40
contains the name twice: first, in the first form above;
second, in the second form. The name is given also in 1 Ch
8:34. It is the other name of MEPHIBOSHETH (2) (which see).
In Jer 11:13 and Hos 9:10 the terms "Baal" and "Bosheth" seem
to stand in apposition, the latter form being a slightly
contemptuous alternative rendered "shame." This is akin to
other like changes, such as Esh-baal for Ish-bosheth, Jerub-
besheth for Jerub-baal, etc. The change in the first part of
the name could occur through a clerical confusion of the
Hebrew aspirate pe (p) and resh (r) in Hebrew.
