 25:16  25:17
 25:18
25:16 God spoke to Moses, saying,
Vayedaber Adonay el-Moshe lemor.
25:17 'Attack the Midianites and kill them
Tsaror et-haMidyanim vehikitem otam.
25:18 since they attacked you through their plot with Peor, as well as through their sister, Kazbi, daughter of a Midianite prince, who was killed on the day of plague that resulted from Peor.'
Ki tsorerim hem lachem benichleyhem asher-niklu lachem al-devar Pe'or ve'al-devar Kozbi vat-nesi Midyan achotam hamukah veyom-hamagefah al-dvar-Pe'or.



Commentary:

Peor
  Although Peor was a Moabite god, it was the Midianites' idea to use it as a means of harming the Israelites (Tzafanath Paneach).
