Numbers 25:3

Context
25:3 When Israel joined themselves to Baal-peor, 1  the anger of the Lord flared up against Israel.

1 tn The verb is “yoked” to Baal-peor. The word is unusual, and may suggest the physical, ritual participation described below. It certainly shows that they acknowledge the reality of the local god.

sn The evidence indicates that Moab was part of the very corrupt Canaanite world, a world that was given over to the fertility ritual of the times.
