Numbers 25:18

Context
25:18 because they bring trouble to you by their treachery with which they have deceived 1  you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of a prince of Midian, 2  their sister, who was killed on the day of the plague that happened as a result of Peor.”

1 tn This is the same word as that translated “treachery.”

2 sn Cozbi’s father, Zur, was one of five Midianite kings who eventually succumbed to Israel (Num 31:8). When the text gives the name and family of a woman, it is asserting that she is important, at least for social reasons, among her people.
