Etymology of Pharaoh the Hebrew Word Peor Meaning Gateway of Great House or Opening to Heaven Moabite Baal Peor


During Old Kingdom (Ice Age) times in ancient Egypt, prro meant great house, for instance where a leader would live or a place of worship, and when the Ice Age had ended, Greeks such as Menelaus and Canopus (Mycenaens) having then come to Egypt began to call the leader of Egypt the pharaoh (prro), that name embraced by the Egyptians for their leader. Baal Peor is a mountain in the ancient territory of the Moabites (progeny of Abraham’s nephew Lot), east of the Dead Sea, its meaning gateway to Baal, jibing with that prro also meant opening or gateway.
