Beor, the father of Balaam, is named in 2 Peter 2:15 (Authorized Version , with some ancient authorities, Bosor, which may be a corruption of Pethor [Grotius], or may be due to the Greek sibilant taking the place of the Heb. guttural [Vitringa]). Balaam by his great wisdom became vain, so a fool (ben be‘ôr), said Jerus. Targ. to Numbers 22:5; cf. Jewish Encyclopedia ii. 468; C. Vitringa, Observ. Sacrœ, i. 936f.
