Strong's #896 - Βάαλ
Baal = "lord"
- the supreme male divinity of the Phoenician and Canaanitish nations, as Ashtoreth was their supreme female divinity
(Rec. Βαάλ ), ὁ , ἡ ,
(Heb. H1168, lord),
Baal: Romans 11:4 (LXX), The fem, art, here agrees with the usage of LXX, where, following a similar Hebrew practice (H1322 for H1168), αἰσχύνη appears to have been substituted in reading for the written Βάαλ (cf. 1 Kings 18:19), and to account for the freq. use of the fem, art. bef. B. The usage, however, is not general, and in the passage cited in Ro (1 Kings 19:18), LXX reads τῷ B.†

Τῇ Βάαλ in Romans 11:4 is paralleled in LXX four times outside Prophets and Apocrypha, where it is feminine without variant : correct thus the note in Proleg..3, p. 59, where see also a reference to the usual explanation (Dillmann’s).
