CHEMOSH

Middle-Eastern Ruler God

War God and chief deity of the Moabites

Little is known of him, but the Moabites never liked the monotheism of their neighbors the Israelites and there was much rivalry. So CHEMOSH was naturally an abomination unto YAHWEH.

He seems strangely ineffectual for a War God. When did the Moabites last win anything?
