Numbers 31:1-6 New International Version

Israel Takes Vengeance on Midian

31 1  The Lord said to Moses, 2  "Take vengeance on the Midianites for the Israelites. After that, you will be gathered to your people." 3  So Moses said to the people, "Arm some of your men to go to war against the Midianites so that they may carry out the Lord's vengeance on them. 4  Send into battle a thousand men from each of the tribes of Israel." 5  So twelve thousand men armed for battle, a thousand from each tribe, were supplied from the clans of Israel. 6  Moses sent them into battle, a thousand from each tribe, along with Phinehas son of Eleazar, the priest, who took with him articles from the sanctuary and the trumpets for signaling.
