Headword: Ἱεροβάαλ
Adler number: iota,171

Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Gideon was so called because he threw down [katabalein] the shrine [hieron] of Baal.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἱεροβάαλ: οὕτως ἐκαλεῖτο ὁ Γεδεὼν διὰ τὸ καταβαλεῖν τὸ ἱερὸν τοῦ Βάαλ.
Notes:
An attempt at a Greek etymology for the name; also in ps.-Zonaras. English versions use the form Jerubbaal, which is closer to the Hebrew form ירבעל.
[1] See Judges 6:32 LXX (web address 1). For Gideon see generally gamma 98, gamma 99.
