Leeser(i) 25 But they murmured in their tents, they hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord. 26 He therefore lifted up his hand against them, to cause them to fall in the wilderness; 27 And to let their seed fall among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands. 28 And they joined themselves unto Ba’al-pe’or, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. 29 And they provoked him to anger with their deeds: and there broke in among them the plague. 30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and the plague was stayed. 31 And it was accounted unto him for righteousness, unto all generations for evermore. 32 They angered him also at the waters of Meribah, and evil happened to Moses for their sake; 33 Because they had embittered his spirit, and so he spoke thoughtlessly with his lips. 34 They did not exterminate the nations, that the Lord had indicated to them; 35 But they mingled themselves among the nations, and learned their doings. 36 And they served their idols, and these became unto them a snare. 37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto the evil spirits; 38 And they shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood-guiltiness. 39 Thus were they made unclean through their own doings, and went astray with their own deeds. 40 therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, and be felt disgust for his own inheritance. 41 And he gave them up into the hand of the nations: and there ruled over them those that hated them. 42 And their enemies also oppressed them: and they were subdued under their hand. 43 Many times did he deliver them; but they rebelled with their counsel, and they were brought low through their iniquity. 44 Nevertheless he looked on when they were in distress, when he heard their entreaty. 45 And he remembered unto them his covenant, and he bethought himself according to the abundance of his kindnesses; 46 And be caused them to find mercy before all those that had carried them away captive. 47 Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the nations, to give thanks unto thy holy name, to triumph in thy praise. 48 Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel from everlasting even to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen, Hallelujah.
