 lewdness with the daughters of Moab.
25:2 And they called the people to the sacrifices of their gods:
 and the people ate, and bowed down to their gods.
25:3 And Israel joined himself to Baal-peor: and the anger of
 the LORD was kindled against Israel.
25:4 And the LORD said to Moses, Take all the heads 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 judges of Israel, Slay ye every one
 his men that were joined to Baal-peor.
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 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

25:11 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest,
 hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, (while
 he was zealous for my sake 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 spoke to Moses, saying,
25:17 Distress the Midianites, and smite them:
25:18 For they distress you with their wiles, with 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, who was
 slain in the day of the plague for Peor's sake.
