Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one And Israel lived in Shittim, and the people began fornication with the daughters of Moab,
2 and they invited the people to the victims of their gods, and the people ate [their sacrifices] and bowed to their gods.
3 And Israel cleaved unto Baal-peor. And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel.
four And the Lord said to Moses: Take all the leaders of the people and hang them to the Lord before the sun, and the fury of the wrath of the Lord will be turned away from Israel.
5 And Moses said to the judges of Israel: Kill every one of his people, who have been cleaved to Baal-peor.

6 And so, one of the sons of Israel came and brought the Midianite to his brothers, in the eyes of Moses and in the eyes of the whole congregation of the sons of Israel, when they wept at the entrance of the tabernacle of meeting.
7 Phinehas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, seeing this, got up from the midst of society and took his spear in his hand,
8 and he went after the Israelite into the bedroom, and pierced both of them, the Israelite and the woman into her womb: and the defeat of the sons of Israel ceased.
9 There were twenty-four thousand dead from the defeat.
10 And the Lord said unto Moses, saying:
eleven Phinehas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, turned away My fury from the sons of Israel, jealous of Me among them, and I did not destroy the sons of Israel in My jealousy;
12 therefore say: Behold, I give him my covenant of peace,
13 and he will be to him and his offspring according to him the covenant of the eternal priesthood, for he showed zeal for his God and interceded the sons of Israel.
fourteen The name of the slain Israelite who was killed with the Midianite was Zimri, the son of Salu, the head of the generation of Simeonov;
fifteen and the name of the murdered Midian Hazwa; she was the daughter of Zur, the chief of Ommoth, the tribe of Midian.

16 And the Lord said unto Moses, saying:
17 quarrel with the Midianites, and defeat them,
eighteen for they hostilely dealt with you in their treachery, seducing you with Fegor and Khazvoy, daughter of the chief of Midian, his sister, who was killed on the day of defeat for Fegor.
