Metaphysical meaning of Beor (mbd)
Beor (A. V., II Peter 2:15, Bosor), be'-ôr (Heb.)--a torch; a lamp; consuming fire; an eating flame; consume by grazing; brutish; stupid; foolish; one who tends a flock; a shepherd.

a Father of Bela, who was a king of Edom (Gen. 36:32). b The prophet Baalam's father (Num. 22:5).

Meta. An intuitive understanding belonging to the outer man of sense (a torch, a lamp). Since this light (understanding) is not established consciously in Spirit nor guided by Spirit, but by material beliefs and desires, it is not a true shepherd to the pure natural life of the organism (a flock), instead it works unwisely and destructively (an eating flame, brutish, foolish).
