From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:

     covenant lord, the name of the god worshipped in Shechem after
     the death of Gideon (Judg. 8:33; 9:4). In 9:46 he is called
     simply "the god Berith." The name denotes the god of the
     covenant into which the Israelites entered with the Canaanites,
     contrary to the command of Jehovah (Ex. 34:12), when they began

     to fall away to the worship of idols.

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:

  Baal-berith, idol of the covenant
