“Vex the Midianites, and smite them:”
King James Version (KJV)
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.
