1 Kings 16:32

_ _ reared up an altar for Baal — that is, the sun, worshipped under various images. Ahab set up one (2 Kings 3:2), probably as the Tyrian Hercules, in the temple in Samaria. No human sacrifices were offered — the fire was kept constantly burning — the priests officiated barefoot. Dancing and kissing the image (1 Kings 19:18) were among the principal rites.
