Camp at Shittim
25:1 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
25:2 And they called the people to the sacrifices of their gods
and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
25:3 And Israel joined himself to Baalpeor and the anger of the
LORD was kindled against Israel.
25:4 And the LORD said to Moses, Take all the chiefs of the
people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.
25:5 And Moses said to the chiefs of Israel, Slay ya'll every one
his men that were joined to Baalpeor.
25:6 And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought to his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and
in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel,
who [were] weeping [before] the door of the tabernacle of the
25:7 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the
priest, saw [it], he rose up from among the congregation, and
took a javelin in his hand ;
25:8 And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and
thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman
through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of
25:9 And those that died in the plague were twenty and four
Phinehas given everlasting Priesthood
25:10 And the LORD spake 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, while he
was zealous with my zeal among them, that I consumed not the
children of Israel in my jealousy.
25:12 Wherefore say, Behold, I give to him my covenant of peace
25:13 And he shall have it, and his seed after him, [even] the
covenant of an everlasting priesthood ; because he was zealous
for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.
25:14 Now the name of the Israelite that was slain, [even] that
was slain with the Midianitish woman, [was] Zimri, the son of
Salu, a prince of a chief house among the Simeonites.
25:15 And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain [was]
Cozbi, the daughter of Zur ; he [was] head over a people, [and]
of a chief house in Midian.
25:16 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying,
25:17 cause distress to the Midianites, and strike them
25:18 For they cause distress to you with their wiles, by which they have
beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi,
the daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain
in the day of the plague for Peor's sake.
