God of the Week: Chemosh

12/05/2011:  Chemosh

Chemosh is an ancient Canaanite god, worshiped as the chief god of the Moabites. According to the Bible, Solomon built a temple to worship him.

The national god of the Moabites. He became angry with his people and permitted them to become the vassals of Israel; his anger passed, he commanded Mesha to fight against Israel, and Moabitish independence was reestablished

-Jewish Encyclopedia

Do you not possess what Chemosh your god gives you to possess? So whatever the [Yahweh] our God has driven out before us, we will possess it.
-Judges 11;24 NAS
