Wesley's Notes for Numbers 25:15


25:13 At everlasting priesthood - To continue as long as the law and common - wealth of the Jews did. But this promise was conditional, and therefore might be made void, by the miscarriages of Phinehas's sons, as it seems it was, and thereupon a like promise was made to Eli of the line of Ithamar, that he and his should walk before the Lord, namely, in the office of high - priest, for ever, which also for his and their sins was made void, #1Sam 2:30|. And the the priesthood returned to Phinehas's line in the time of Solomon, #1Kings 2:26|,27,34.

25:17 The Midianites - And why not the Moabites. It is probable the Midianites were most guilty, as in persuading Balak to send for Balaam, #Nu 22:4|,7. So in the reception of Balaam after Balak had dismissed him, #Nu 31:8|, and in farther consultation with him, and in contriving the means for the executing of this wicked plot.
