A place in ancient Israel, Baal-Gad was a Canaanite town in the valley of Lebanon at the foot of Hermon, near the source of Jordan River. (Josh. 13:5; 11:17; 12:7) It was the most northern point to which Joshua's conquests extended. It probably derived its name from the worship of Baal. Its exact location is uncertain, but it is generally considered to be Hasbaiya in Wadi et-Teim or a site nearby.

Easton's suggests that its modern representative is Banias. Some have supposed it to be the same as Baalbec.
