The Hebrew word el is related to the Phoenician god Baal , which means 'lord' or 'god' and as the Phoenician people originally are from the region now known as Libanon and surroundings, the Bible also tells about Baal. I don;t know where the story is to found, but i remember a story about people believing in Baal in the northern part of Galizea (but it is all unclear now with new borders what region is meant)
