15 Moses said to them, “Have you saved all the women alive? 16 These caused the children of Israel, through the word of Balaam, to act unfaithfully against the Lord concerning the thing of Peor, and there was a plague among the assembly of the Lord.
The thing that happened at Peor:
While Israel dwelt in Shittim, the people began to commit harlotry with the women of Moab. 2 They called the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate and bowed down to their gods. 3 Israel joined himself to the Baal of Peor, and the anger of the Lord was inflamed against Israel.

“I made a covenant with my eyes; why then should I look upon a young woman?
34 The eye is the lamp of the body. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. 35 Take heed therefore lest the light which is in you is darkness.
