( Β o Σόρ ), the Graecized form of the name of a place and of a man.

1. A city, both large and fortified, on the east of Jordan, in the land of Gilead (Galaad), named with Bozrah (Bosora), Carnaim, and other places, in  1 Maccabees 5:26;  1 Maccabees 5:36. It is probably the BEZER (See Bezer) (q.v.) of  Numbers 4:43 (see Grimm, Exeg. Handb. in loc.).

2. The Aramaic mode of pronouncing the name of BEOR (See Beor) (q.v.), the father of Balaam ( 2 Peter 2:15), in accordance with the substitution, frequent in Chaldee, of צ for ע (see Gesenius, Thes. p. 1144).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [8]

bō´sor ( Βοσόρ , Bosór ):

(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 Buṣr el - Ḥarı̄rı̄ , in the Luḥf , Southeast of el - Lejā' .

(2) In  2 Peter 2:15 the King James Version, the Greek form of Beor (which see).
