Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
BETH-PEOR . A city belonging to Reuben ( Joshua 13:20 ), located most probably some four or five miles north of Mt. Nebo, near the Pisgah range. Just opposite to it, in the ravine ( WÃ¢dy HesbÃ¢n probably), the Israelites encamped ( Deuteronomy 3:29; Deuteronomy 4:46 ). Moses was buried in the valley ‘over against Beth-peor’ ( Deuteronomy 34:6 ). Conder suggests a site several miles to the S., near ‘Ain el-Minyeh , but the impression given by Numbers 25:1-8 is that the city was not so far distant from the plain of Shittim.
