25:1 Israel abode in Shittim; and the people began to play the prostitute with the daughters of Moab:
25:2 for they called the people to the sacrifices of their gods; and the people ate, and bowed down to their gods.
25:3 Israel joined himself to Baal-peor: and the anger of Yahweh was kindled against Israel.
25:6 Behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought to his brothers a Midianite woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, while they were weeping at the door of the tent of meeting.
25:8 and he went after the man of Israel into the pavilion, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her body. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.
25:9 Those who died by the plague were twenty-four thousand.
25:10 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
25:11 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, has turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, in that he was jealous with my jealousy among them, so that I didn`t consume the children of Israel in my jealousy.
25:12 Therefore say, Behold, I give to him my covenant of peace:
25:14 Now the name of the man of Israel that was slain, who was slain with the Midianite woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince of a fathers` house among the Simeonites.
25:16 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
25:17 Vex the Midianites, and strike them;
25:18 for they vex you with their wiles, with which they have deceived you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of the prince of Midian, their sister, who was slain on the day of the plague in the matter of Peor.
