Baal-Peor

Additional Links

This was the famous, or rather infamous dunghill idol of Moab; and which they tempted the Israelites worship. The Psalmist mournfully speaks of it, (Psalms 106:18) "they joined themselves unto Baal-peor, and ate the offerings of the dead." (Numbers 25:1-3; Hosea 9:10) From what this prophet saith of their shame; and from the impure name of this strumpet idol; there is reason to believe that the greatest indecency was joined with idolatry, in the, worship of this Baal-peor.
