BEOR [SMITH](burning or torch).
- The father of Bela, one of the early Edomite kings. (Genesis 36:32; 1Ã‚Â Chronicles 1:43)
- Father of Balaam. (Numbers 22:5; 24:3,15; 31:8; 23:4; Joshua 13:22; 24:9; Micah 6:5) He is called BOSOR in the New Testament. (B.C. before 1450.)
BOSOR [SMITH]same as BEOR. (2Ã‚Â Peter 2:15)
BEOR [ISBE]BEOR - be'-or (be`or, "destroyer"(?)):
(1) Father of Bela, the first king of Edom (Gen 36:32; 1 Ch 1:43).
(2) The father of the seer Balaam (Nu 22:5; 24:3,15; 31:8; Dt 23:4; Josh 13:22; 24:9, omitted in Septuagint; Mic 6:5; 2 Pet 2:15, the King James Version and the Revised Version, margin "Bosor").
BOSOR [ISBE]BOSOR - bo'-sor (Bosor):
(1) A city named among those taken by Judas Maccabeus "in the land of Gilead" (1 Macc 5:26,36). From the towns named it is evident that this phrase is elastic, covering territory beyond what is usually called the land of Gilead. Possibly therefore Bosor may be identical with Bucr el-Chariri, in the Luchf, Southeast of el-Leja'.
(2) In 2 Pet 2:15 the King James Version, the Greek form of BEOR (which see).
