SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:8 y fue tras el varón de Israel a la tienda, y los alanceó a ambos, al varón de Israel, y a la mujer por su vientre. Y cesó la mortandad de los hijos de Israel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 25:8 Verse 8. Thrust both of them through] Inspired undoubtedly by the Spirit of the God of justice to do this act, which can never be a precedent on any common occasion. An act something similar occurs in our own history. In 1381, in the minority of Richard II., a most formidable insurrection took place in Kent and Essex; about 100, 000 men, chiefly under the direction of Wat Tyler, seized on London, massacred multitudes of innocent people, and were proceeding to the greatest enormities, when the king requiring a conference in Smithfield with the rebel leader, Sir William Walworth, then mayor of London, provoked at the insolence with which Tyler behaved to his sovereign, knocked him off his horse with his mace, after which he was instantly despatched. While his partisans were bending their bows to revenge the death of their leader, Richard, then only sixteen years of age, rode up to them, and with great courage and presence of mind thus addressed them: "What, my people, will you kill your king! be not concerned for the death of your leader; follow me, and I will be your general." They were suddenly appeased, and the rebellion terminated. The action of Sir William Walworth was that of a zealot, of essential benefit at the time, and justified only by the pressing exigencies of the case.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. And he went after the man of Israel into the tent , etc.] Into which he went with his harlot; the word here used is different from what is commonly used for a tent: Aben Ezra observes that in the Kedarene or Arabic language there is a word near to it, which Bochart, putting the article “al” to it, says f405 , is “alkobba”, from whence is the word “alcove” with us; and Aben Ezra says, there was some little difference between the form of a tent and this, as well as others observe there was in the matter of it, this being of skins and leather, and the other of hair, boughs of trees, etc. the author of Aruch says, it was short, or narrow above and broad below, and interprets it a place in which whores were put; and so it is used in the Talmud for a brothel house, and is so translated here by some interpreters f409 : and thrust both of them through ; with his javelin, spear, or pike; the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly ; by which, it seems, they were killed in the very act of uncleanness; this was an extraordinary action, done by a person of public authority, and under a more than common emotion of spirit, and not to be drawn into an example by persons of a private character: so the plague was stayed from the children of Israel ; which had broke out among them and carried off many; even a disease, the pestilence, according to Josephus f410 ; it ceasing upon this fact of Phinehas, shows that that was approved of by the Lord.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 6-15 - Phinehas, in the courage of zeal and faith, executed vengeance on Zimr and Cozbi. This act can never be an example for private revenge, or religious persecution, or for irregular public vengeance.
