Baal gad
        A Canaanite sanctuary of Baal, as "the lord of fortune." The N. W. limit of Joshua’s victories, as Hamath was the N.E. limit (Joshua
        11:17; 12:7; 13:5). "Under mount Hermon, in the valley of Lebanon," still retaining the Hebrew name for "the valley," ‘ el buka , between
        Lebanon and Antilebanon. Probably now Banias, at the fountain which is one of the Jordan’s sources, formerly a sanctuary of Pan. Baalbek
        (= the city of the sun) is situated too far N. at the lowest declivity of Antilibanus to be identified with Baal.
