Metaphysical meaning of Baalath (mbd)
Baalath, ba'-al-ath (Heb.)--citizens; subjects; possessions; belonging to Baal; mistresses.

a A town of the tribe of Dan (Josh. 19:44). b A town that Solomon rebuilt after he married the daughter of the king of Egypt (I Kings 9:18). This latter was perhaps the same place as the previously named town of the tribe of Dan.

Meta. Baal means lord, master, possessor, and pertains to the attributing of power and authority to the outer world of phenomena instead of recognizing Spirit as the one true source of all existence and of all prosperity and supply. Baalath represents the belief of the spiritually unawakened soul in man that his possessions, his privileges, and the good that he enjoys have their source in the outer, the material.
