Presumably, not all of these people were offenders.

Numbers Chapter 25 details the story of Israel as they camped at a place called Sheetim in the territory east of what would become the nation of Israel, this territory being occupied by the Moabites. He drove the spear into both of them, right through the Israelite man and into the woman’s stomach. I’ve read this before but I believe God was leading me back to this story and I found it on your page. Personally, I cannot imagine this kind of rebellion, a person that has a heart so hard and so bent on rejecting God that they would sin willingly and openly in front of the Pastor of Israel, Moses, and God Himself. The story of Phineas is always one of my favorite…this generation definitely lacks that kind of courage and boldness to step out and stand against rebellion in the church. I read the Psalmist reference to Phineas this morning. I was reading in Psalm 106 and was greatly apprehended by the verses 29-31!! I find this story absolutely amazing and inspiring, especially in this day and age. The women invite the men into their tents and soon include them in worshipping their gods. God knew that to let sin go unpunished would teach a whole new generation to not care about fight and wrong. The Midianites are destroyed. The whole reason for Israel’s existence was to be set apart from other nations and to walk in His ways. May I also become a Phineas during this wicked generation. We need more people like him!

I love this because Phineas is my name. It is expected that anyone committing these sins will be punished. Posted in Personal Online Journal | 14 Comments. Moses and everyone else sees them, but all are silent.

Go to People in the Bible or Women in the Bible. God speaks to Moses about Phinehas and says He halted the plague because Phinehas is “as zealous for my honor as I myself am.”.

And, yes, Phineas was just who I was thinking about regarding someone I know’s zeal for the Lord! Numbers 25:7-13 New International Version (NIV). As we rise to combat evil in our society today, may we be counted with Phineas, that you would make your covenant of Peace with us, and that we would do all we can to bring this nation back to its former greatness and glory. I cherish the Book of Numbers so highly, mostly because of one story in Chapter 25, the story of Phineas. After listening to their explanation, Phinehas and the tribal chiefs are satisfied. He drove the spear into both of them, right through the Israelite man and into the woman’s stomach. He is buried on land given to Phinehas in the mountains of Ephraim. Yet, once the punishment (plague) begins, there is no distinction between the guilty and the innocent. While camped there, once again a large group of Israelites decided to deliberately rebel against God, first of all by ‘whoring with the women of Moab.’ (Numbers 25:1)  These strange women then enticed, by their wickedness and sexual perversion, many Israeli men to commit the sin of idolatry, of worshipping demonic false gods. Sometime later, Eleazar dies. Effectively this man CHOSE his fate. No event described in the Old Testament is more relevant to our society today than the story of the man I call “Fearless Phinehas.” May more of us, including me, have the courage and boldness to stand up for God’s standards. This is not Phinehas’ last encounter with the Midianites. Phinehas sees them too, follows them into the tent, and impales them with a spear in accordance with the instructions God has given. It is one perfect daily intercession scripture for the USA at the moment in seeing God move on our land & people.

I’m a bit different in that my favorite book of the Bible is the Book of Numbers. I must say I find this passage deeply disturbing, and contradictory to my understanding, however limited, of Christianity. He was the son of Eleazar, who was the son of Aaron, the High Priest of Israel. Unless you are a Bible scholar, you may have never heard of this man.

His father is Eleazar.

Thanks for your article. It is my hope that someone may take a moment to assist me in better understanding this passage. Men are given every opportunity to repent and follow God. It helps to know that the Israelites hold that idolatry, sexual impropriety, and intermarriage are grave sins. Another major event in the life of Phinehas occurs after the Israelites have settled in the land of Canaan. All rights reserved. 7 When Phineas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, the priest, saw this, he left the assembly, took a spear in his hand 8 and followed the Israelite into the tent. Phineas, filled with Godly rage and wrath, rose up, grabbed a spear, followed the man and woman to the man’s tent and killed them both, driving the spear straight through both of their bodies while they were in the very act of fornication. Many of the people come to weep at the entrance to the tent of meeting.

He appears to be an only child.
