25:10 The Lord spoke to Moses: 25:11 “Phinehas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, has turned my anger away from the Israelites, when he manifested such zeal19 for my sake among them, so that I did not consume the Israelites in my zeal.20 25:12 Therefore, announce:21 ‘I am going to give22 to him my covenant of peace.23 25:13 So it will be to him and his descendants after him a covenant of a permanent priesthood, because he has been zealous for his God,24 and has made atonement25 for the Israelites.’ ”
25:14 Now the name of the Israelite who was stabbed—the one who was stabbed with the Midianite woman—was Zimri son of Salu, a leader of a clan26 of the Simeonites. 25:15 The name of the Midianite woman who was killed was Cozbi daughter of Zur. He was a leader27 over the people of a clan of Midian.28
25:16 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 25:17 “Bring trouble29 to the Midianites, and destroy them, 25:18 because they bring trouble to you by their treachery with which they have deceived30 you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of a prince of Midian,31 their sister, who was killed on the day of the plague that happened as a result of Peor.”
