Numbers 25:1-5 The Voice (VOICE)

25 Now it happened that while Israel was biding its time at Shittim, on the edge of the wilderness near Jericho, some of the men got mixed up with Moabite women. They got friendly and had sexual relations. The Moabites invited these Israelites to participate in Moabite religious rituals and worship of their gods, and God’s people bound themselves to the deity Baal of Peor, which made the Eternal One furious at Israel.

Eternal One (to Moses): Grab them! Every wicked leader of this people. Then in broad daylight, in front of the Eternal, string them up on stakes to twist and turn so that My burning rage doesn’t consume the entire population.

Moses (to the Israelite judges): Look to your people, and kill whoever pledged himself to the deity Baal of Peor.
