Is the iniquity
Israel joined themselves to Baal of Peor, and the Lord was angry against Israel.
Your eyes have seen what the Lord has done in the case of Baal-peor, for all the men who followed Baal-peor, the Lord your God has destroyed them from among you.
They joined themselves also to Baal-peor,
sacrifices offered to the dead.
After all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and
our great guilt, since You our God have requited us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us an escaped remnant as this,
1 Corinthians 10:8
Nor let us act immorally, as
some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in one day.
