CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
25:5 Every one his men - Those under his charge, for as these seventy were chosen to assist Moses in the government, so doubtless the care and management of the people was distributed among them by just and equal proportions.
Moses told them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Each of you, take your swords and go back and forth from one end of the camp to the other. Kill everyone--even your brothers, friends, and neighbors."
In this way, Israel joined in the worship of Baal of Peor, causing the LORD's anger to blaze against his people.
