Judges 20:33 All the men of Israel rose up out of their place, and set themselves in array at Baal Tamar: and the ambushers of Israel broke forth out of their place, even out of Maareh Geba.

ba-al-ta'-mar ba`al tamar; Baal Thamar, ("Baal of the palm tree"): Evidently a seat of heathen worship (Judges 20:33) between Bethel and Gibeah (compare Judges 20:18, 31). The place was known to Eusebius (Onomasticon, which see), but trace of the name is now lost. Conder suggests that it may be connected with the palm tree of Deborah (Judges 4:5) which was between Bethel and Ramah (HDB, under the word).
