SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:9 Y murieron de aquella mortandad veinticuatro mil.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 25:9 Verse 9. Those that died-were twenty and four thousand.] St. Paul, 1 Cor. x. 8, reckons only twenty-three thousand; though some MSS.
and versions, particularly the latter Syriac and the Armenian, have twenty-four thousand, with the Hebrew text. Allowing the 24, 000 to be the genuine reading, and none of the Hebrew MSS. exhibit any various reading here, the two places may be reconciled thus: 1, 000 men were slain in consequence of the examination instituted ver. 4, and 23, 000 in consequence of the orders given ver. 5; making 24, 000 in the whole. St. Paul probably refers only to the latter number.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 9. And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand .] The apostle says 23,000 ( 1 Corinthians 10:8). Moses includes those that were hanged against the sun, in the time of the plague, as well as those that were taken off by it, even all that died on this account; the apostle only those that “fell”, which cannot with propriety be said of those that were hanged, who might be 1000 and so their numbers agree; but of this and other ways of removing this difficulty (see Gill on “ 1 Corinthians 10:8”).
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.
