24Then they despised the pleasant land, having no faith in his promise.

25They grumbled in their tents, and did not obey the voice of the Lord.

26Therefore he raised his hand and swore to them that he would make them fall in the wilderness,

27and would disperse their descendants among the nations, scattering them over the lands.

28Then they attached themselves to the Baal of Peor, and ate sacrifices offered to the dead;

29they provoked the Lord to anger with their deeds, and a plague broke out among them.

30Then Phinehas stood up and interceded, and the plague was stopped.

31And that has been reckoned to him as righteousness from generation to generation forever.

32They angered the Lord at the waters of Meribah, and it went ill with Moses on their account;

33for they made his spirit bitter, and he spoke words that were rash.

34They did not destroy the peoples, as the Lord commanded them,

35but they mingled with the nations and learned to do as they did.

36They served their idols, which became a snare to them.

37They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons;

38they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood.

39Thus they became unclean by their acts, and prostituted themselves in their doings.

40Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people, and he abhorred his heritage;

41he gave them into the hand of the nations, so that those who hated them ruled over them.

42Their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their power.

43Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes, and were brought low through their iniquity.

44Nevertheless he regarded their distress when he heard their cry.

45For their sake he remembered his covenant, and showed compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love.

46He caused them to be pitied by all who held them captive.

47Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.

48Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. And let all the people say, “Amen.” Praise the Lord!
