(bay' uhl-pee' ohr) In Numbers 25:3 , a Moabite deity that the Israelites worshiped when they had illicit sexual relations with Moabite women. The guilty Israelites were severely punished for this transgression, and the incident became a paradigm of sin and divine judgment for later generations of Israelites (Deuteronomy 4:3; Psalm 106:28; Hosea 9:10 ). See Moab; Peor .
