having a courtyard, or Baal's village, the place on the borders of Ephraim and Benjamin where Absalom held the feast of sheep-shearing when Amnon was assassinated (2 Sam. 13:23). Probably it is the same with Hazor (Neh. 11:33), now Tell' Asur, 5 miles north-east of Bethel.
A sheepshearing at baal-hazor gave occasion for a feast, to which the king and all his sons should be asked.
Absalom's lands and herds were situated at baal-hazor, not far from the capital.
