Numbers 22:41

The high places of Baal — Consecrated to the worship of Baal, that is, of Baal Peor, who was their Baal or God. The utmost part — That is, all that people, even to the utmost and remotest of them, as appears by comparing this with, Numbers 23:13. He hoped that the sight of such a numerous host ready to break in upon his country would stir up his passion.

Bamoth baal, "the high places of Baal," probably the same as Bamoth mentioned in
Numbers 21:19-20 And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth: ... And from Bamoth [in] the valley, that [is] in the country of Moab, to the top of Pisgah, which looketh toward Jeshimon.
; evidently not far from Baal-meon, in the mountains of Abarim. For the Israelites were now encamped in the plains of Moab, which these mountains overlook. Baal, which signifies a lord or governor, was a name common to many idols; and probably here was the same as Chemosh, the god of Moab.
Numbers 25:2-3 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. ... And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.
Deuteronomy 12:2 Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:
2 Chronicles 11:15 And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.
Jeremiah 48:35 Moreover I will cause to cease in Moab, saith the LORD, him that offereth in the high places, and him that burneth incense to his gods.

utmost:

Numbers 23:13 And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou shalt see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all: and curse me them from thence.
