58) The Violence of the Israelites Against the Baa of Peor

Illustrating a scene from Numbers 25: 6: "Then behold, one of the sons of Israel came and brought to his relatives a Midianite woman, in the sight of Moses and in the sight of all the congregation of the sons of Israel, while they were weeping at the doorway of the tent of the meeting." Moses, of course, is the one who is standing alone with the halo.
