Numbers 31: Balaam Dies

Old Testament Seminary Student Study Guide, (2002), 70

Numbers 31 records how the Lord sent the army of Israel against the Midianites because the Midianites sought to destroy the Israelites through immorality and idolatry. Among the slain was the soothsayer Balaam, who turned against the Lord and His people. To show gratitude for their victory, the armies of Israel dedicated to the Lord much of what they captured.
