Hebrew - Beth-peor

(behth-pee' awr) Place name meaning, “house of Peor.” A temple for the god Peor or Baal Peor probably stood there. See Baal Peor. Town in whose valley Israel camped as Moses delivered the sermons of the Book of Deuteronomy (Deuteronomy 3:29). It had belonged to Sihon, king of the Amorites (Deuteronomy 4:46). Moses died and was buried near there (Deuteronomy 34:6). It belonged to tribe of Reuben (Joshua 13:20). It was located at modern khirbet Uyun Musa, twenty miles east of the north end of the Dead Sea. Numbers does not use the place name, but evidently at least part of the shameful worship of Baal Peor (Numbers 25:1-5) occurred at Beth-peor. Hosea described the actions of Peor as a turning point in Israel's blissful honeymoon with God (Hosea 9:10). See Peor.
