Fire also came out from the Lord and consumed the 250 men who were presenting the incense.
Your eyes have seen what the Lord did at Baal-peor, for the Lord your God destroyed every one of you who followed Baal of Peor.
The Lord defeated Benjamin in the presence of Israel, and on that day the Israelites slaughtered 25,100 men of Benjamin; all were armed men.
1 Samuel 6:19
God struck down the men of Beth-shemesh because they looked inside the ark of the Lord. He struck down 70 men out of 50,000 men. The people mourned because the Lord struck them with a great slaughter.
God’s anger flared up against them,
and He killed some of their best men.
He struck down Israel’s choice young men.
?DaletHe has bent His bow like an enemy;
His right hand is positioned like an adversary.
He has killed everyone who was loved,
pouring out His wrath like fire
on the tent of Daughter Zion.
?SamekYou have covered Yourself in anger and pursued us;
You have killed without compassion.
Did the Lord strike Israel
as He struck the one who struck Israel?
Was he killed like those killed by Him?
When He killed some of them,
the rest began to seek Him;
they repented and searched for God.
Now I want to remind you, though you know all these things: The Lord first saved a people out of Egypt and later destroyed those who did not believe;
This is why I have used the prophets
to cut them down;
I have killed them with the words of My mouth.
My judgment strikes like lightning.
I sent plagues like those of Egypt;
I killed your young men with the sword,
along with your captured horses.
I caused the stench of your camp
to fill your nostrils,
yet you did not return to Me.
This is the Lord’s declaration.
‘Since the Lord wasn’t able to bring this people into the land He swore to give them, He has slaughtered them in the wilderness.’
Then He said to them, “Defile the temple and fill the courts with the slain. Go!” So they went out killing people in the city.
??ShinBoth young and old
are lying on the ground in the streets.
My young men and women
have fallen by the sword.
You have killed them in the day of Your anger,
slaughtering without compassion.
