Baal was a Canaanite god.  The word means "lord" or "husband."  He was a god of weather, associated with thunder, which appointed the times of the rains, and was considered to be the son of the pagan god Dagon.  The ancient Jews were often tempted to follow Baal because so much of their lives depended upon the rain that fed the crops.
