ERV(i) 25 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD. 26 Therefore he lifted up his hand unto them, that he would overthrow them in the wilderness: 27 And that he would overthrow their seed among the nations, and scatter them in the lands. 28 They joined themselves also unto Baal-peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. 29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their doings; and the plague brake in upon them. 30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed. 31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness, unto all generations for evermore. 32 They angered him also at the waters of Meribah, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes: 33 Because they were rebellious against his spirit, and he spake unadvisedly with his lips. 34 They did not destroy the peoples, as the LORD commanded them; 35 But mingled themselves with the nations, and learned their works: 36 And they served their idols; which became a snare unto them: 37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto demons, 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood. 39 Thus were they defiled with their works, and went a whoring in their doings. 40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, and he abhorred his inheritance. 41 And he gave them into the hand of the nations; and they that hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. 43 Many times did he deliver them; but they were rebellious in their counsel, and were brought low in their iniquity. 44 Nevertheless he regarded their distress, when he heard their cry: 45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies. 46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives. 47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the nations, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise. 48 Blessed be the LORD, the God or Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
