And Israel [a]coupled himself unto Baal of Peor: wherefore the wrath of the Lord was kindled against Israel:

And the Lord said unto Moses, (A)Take all the heads of the people and hang them up [b]before the Lord [c]against the Sun, that the indignation of the Lord’s wrath may be turned from Israel.

Then Moses said unto the Judges of Israel, Everyone slay his [d]men that were joined unto Baal of Peor.
