Bible: Num 25:10-13

The Aftermath

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 zeal 1  for my sake among them, so that I did not consume the Israelites in my zeal. 2  25:12 Therefore, announce: 3  ‘I am going to give 4  to him my covenant of peace. 5  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, 6  and has made atonement 7  for the Israelites.’
