Is the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are not cleansed until this day, for which there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD?
And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to fornicate with the daughters of Moab,
Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor; for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God has destroyed them from among you.
They also joined themselves unto Baalpeor and ate the sacrifices for the dead.
And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guiltiness, seeing that thou our God hast intervened that we no longer be oppressed because of our iniquities and hast given us such an escape as this,
Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed and fell dead: in one day, twenty-three thousand.
Now all these things happened unto them as types, and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages are come.
