The most famous Baal was the Canaanite god Hadad, who was worshiped as the lord of rain, thunder, and crops.

He was often depicted as a bull or a man with horns, holding a thunderbolt.

He had a sister and consort named Anat, and a rival named Mot, the god of death and drought.

Baal's myths describe his battles with Mot, his palace building, and his role as the king of the gods.

Baal was also worshiped by other peoples, such as the Phoenicians, who called him Baal Shamen, meaning "lord of the heavens".

He was associated with the Greek god Zeus and the Mesopotamian god Hadad.

Baal was sometimes identified with other local deities, such as Melqart, the patron god of Tyre, or Dagon, the god of grain and fish.

He was also the name of a city in Lebanon, where a famous temple was dedicated to him.

Baal was opposed by the Israelites, who considered him a false god and a threat to their monotheistic faith.

The Hebrew Bible mentions several instances of conflict between the followers of Baal and the followers of Yahweh, the God of Israel.

For example, the prophet Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal to a contest on Mount Carmel, where he proved that Yahweh was the true God by sending fire from heaven.

The Israelites also destroyed many altars and images of Baal, and sometimes used his name as an insult, such as Beelzebub, meaning "Lord of the flies".

Baal is a complex and ancient figure, who was revered and feared by many cultures in the Near East.

He represented the power and fertility of nature, but also the danger and chaos of the storms.

He was a lord of many things, but also a subject of controversy and conflict.
