Numbers 25:1-5

Baal Worship at Peor

1While Israel lived in aShittim, bthe people began to whore with the daughters of Moab. 2 cThese invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate and bowed down to their gods. 3So Israel yoked himself to Baal of Peor. And the anger of the  Lord was kindled against Israel. 4And the  Lord said to Moses, dTake all the chiefs of the people and ehang
Or impale
them
in the sun before the  Lord, gthat the fierce anger of the  Lord may turn away from Israel.”
5And Moses said to hthe judges of Israel, iEach of you kill those of his men who have yoked themselves to Baal of Peor.”
