Baal Peor

BAAL PEOR (bā'ăl pē'ôr, Heb. ba‘al pe‘ôr, Baal of Peor). A Moabite deity, probably Chemosh, worshiped on the top of Mount Peor. The Israelites, when encamped at Shittim, were induced by Moabite women to the worship of this deity and were severely punished by God as a result (Num.25.1-Num.25.9; Ps.106.28; Hos.9.10).
