    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:17

    Afligiréis a los madianitas, y los heriréis;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 25:17

    Verse 17.
    Vex the Midianites, &c.] See this order fulfilled, chap. xxxi. 1-20. Twelve thousand Israelites attacked the Midianites, destroyed all their cities, slew their five kings, every male, and every grown up woman, and took all their spoils.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17.
    Vex the Midianites, and smite them .] Go to war with them, and smite them with the sword; not the Moabites, but the Midianites, though they were both confederates against Israel; but God had given a charge not to contend in battle with Moab, ( Deuteronomy 2:9), they were spared for the sake of Lot, from whom they sprang; and, as Jarchi says, for the sake of Ruth, who was to come from them; and so in the Talmud f415 ; though they did not entirely escape the divine resentment, as appears from ( Deuteronomy 23:3,4) but the Midianites were the first that advised to send for Balaam, and with them he stayed and was entertained, after he had been dismissed by Balak; and it seems as if it was to them he gave the wicked counsel, to draw Israel into fornication, and so into idolatry, and thereby bring the curse of God upon them; which advice they communicated to the Moabites, and both were concerned in putting it into execution; (see Numbers 22:4,7 25:1,6 31:9,16).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-18 - We read not that any Midianites
    died of the plague; God punished the with the sword of an enemy, not with the rod of a father. We must se ourselves against whatever is an occasion of sin to us, Mt 5:29, 30 Whatever draws us to sin, should be a vexation to us, as a thorn in the flesh. And none will be more surely and severely punished than thos who, after Satan's example, and with his subtlety, tempt others to sin __________________________________________________________________
