pe'-or (ha-pe`or; Phogor):
(1) A mountain in the land of Moab, the last of the three heights to which Balaam was guided by Balak in order that he might curse Israel (Numbers 23:28). It is placed by Eusebius, Onomasticon on the way between Livias and Heshbon, 7 Roman miles from the latter. Buhl would identify it with Jebel el-Mashaqqar, on which are the ruins of an old town, between Wady A`yun Musa and Wady Chesban.
(2) A town in the Judean uplands added by Septuagint (Phagor) to the list in Joshua 15:9. It may be identical with Khirbet Faghur to the South of Bethlehem.
