and Ashdodpisgah; of which see Deuteronomy 3:17,

and Bethjeshimoth; of which see Numbers 33:49.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

20.Beth-peor — That is, house of Peor. The town probably got its name from having been the chief seat of the worship of the Moabite god Baal-peor. Numbers 25:3-5. It was situated on or beside Mount Peor, and close to the valley where the Israelites encamped immediately before descending into the plain of the Jordan. Deuteronomy 3:29. It was in this valley — apparently the modern Wady Hesban — Moses was buried, (Deuteronomy 34:6,) and Mount Pisgah, on which he died, could not have been far distant to the south. The valley of Heshbon has never been fully explored. “Whatever traveller may succeed in doing so will be rewarded by the discovery of the ruins of Beth-peor, and the closest approximation that has yet been made to the place of Moses’ sepulchre.” — J.L. Potter. Ashdoth-pisgah and

Beth-jeshimoth — See notes on Joshua 12:3.
