Numbers 25

CHAPTER 25

Israel Fornicates to Baal-peor

And Israel rested up in Shittim, and [3profaned 1the 2people] to fornicate with the daughters of Moab. And they called them unto the sacrifices of their idols, and [3ate 1the 2people] of their sacrifices, and they did obeisance to their idols. And Israel was initiated to Baal-peor; and [2was provoked to anger 3in rage 1the  lord] with Israel. And the  lord said to Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and make an example of them for the  lord over against the sun! and [4shall turn away 1the anger 2of the rage 3of the  lord] from Israel. And Moses said to the tribes of Israel, Let [2kill 1each] the one of his family being initiated to Baal-Peor! And behold, a man of the sons of Israel coming, led forward his brother to the Midianitish woman before Moses, and before all the congregation of the sons of Israel. And they were weeping by the door of the tent of the testimony.

Phinehas Stems the Calamity

And seeing, Phinehas son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, rose up from the midst of the congregation, and taking a spear in his hand, he entered after the Israelitish man into the furnace, and he pierced both the Israelitish man, and the woman through her womb; and [3ceased 1the 2calamity] from the sons of Israel. And [6were 1the 2ones having died 3by 4the 5calamity] four and twenty thousand. 10 And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, 11 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, caused [2to cease 1my rage] from the sons of Israel, in my being jealous in the zeal for them; and I did not completely consume the sons of Israel in my zeal. 12 Thus say! Behold, I make with him my covenant of peace; 13 and it will be to him and to his seed after him a covenant [2priesthood 1of an eternal], because he was jealous for his God, and he atoned for the sons of Israel. 14 And the name of the Israelitish man being struck, who was stricken with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri son of Salu, ruler of the house of the family of Simeon. 15 And the name of the Midianitish woman being struck, was Cozbi, daughter of Zur, a ruler of the nation of Ommoth; [2of the house 3of the family 1it is] of the ones of Midian. 16 And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel! saying, 17 Hate the Midianites, and strike them! 18 For [4are hating 5you 3they 1with 2deceit], with as many things they used deceit against you through Peor, even through Cozbi, daughter of the ruler of Midian, their sister, the one being struck in the day of the calamity on account of Peor.
