Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 25:3

_ _ Israel joined himself unto Baal-peor — Baal was a general name for “lord,” and Peor for a “mount” in Moab. The real name of the idol was Chemosh, and his rites of worship were celebrated by the grossest obscenity. In participating in this festival, then, the Israelites committed the double offense of idolatry and licentiousness.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 25:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 25:3

Joined himself — The word implies a forsaking God to whom they were joined and a turning to, and strict conjunction with, this false God. Baal — peor — Called Baal, by the name common to many false Gods, and especially to those that represented any of the heavenly bodies, and Peor, either from the hill Peor, where he was worshipped, Numbers 23:28, rather from a verb signifying to open and uncover, because of the obscene posture in which the idol was set, as Priapus was: or because of the filthiness which was exercised in his worship.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Numbers 25:3

And Israel (b) joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.

(b) Worshipped the idol of the Moabites, which was in the hill Peor.
