The plural, Baalim, is found frequently, showing that he was probably worshipped under different compounds, among which appear--
BAAL-PEOR (lord of the opening, i.e. for others to join in the worship). We have already referred to the worship of this god. The narrative (Numb 25) seems clearly to show that this form of Baal-worship was connected with licentious rites.
