BAALATH-BEER

ba'-a-lath-be'-er ba`alath be'er "lady (mistress) of the well"; Josh 19:8 (in 1 Ch 4:33, Baal)): In Josh this place is designated "Ramah of the South," i.e. of the Negeb, while in 1 Sam 30:27 it is described as Ramoth of the Negeb. It must have been a prominent hill (ramah = "height") in the far south of the Negeb and near a well be'er. The site is unknown though Conder suggests that the shrine Kubbet el Baul may retain the old name.
