God’s Punishment

25:4 The Lord said to Moses, “Arrest all the leaders 2  of the people, and hang them up 3  before the Lord in broad daylight, 4  so that the fierce anger of the Lord may be turned away from Israel.” 25:5 So Moses said to the judges of Israel, “Each of you must execute those of his men 5  who were joined to Baal-peor.”
