    Clarke's Commentary on Numbers 23:28

    Unto the top of Peor - Probably the place where the famous Baal-peor had his chief temple. He appears to have been the Priapus of the Moabites, and to have been worshipped with the same obscene and abominable rites.

    Barnes' Notes on Numbers 23:28

    The position of Peor northward from Pisgah, along the Abarim heights, is approximately determined by the extant notices of Beth-peor.

    Jeshimon - was the waste, in the great valley below, where stood Beth-jeshimoth, "the house of the wastes."

    Wesley's Notes on Numbers 23:28

    23:28 Peor - An high place called Beth - peor, Deu 3:29. That is, the house or temple of Peor, because there they worshipped Baal - peor.
