Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 25:9

_ _ those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand — Only twenty-three thousand perished (1 Corinthians 10:8) from pestilence. Moses includes those who died by the execution of the judges [Numbers 25:5].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 25:6-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 25:9

Twenty four thousand — St. Paul says twenty three thousand, 1 Corinthians 10:8. The odd thousand here added were slain by the Judges according to the order of Moses, the rest by the immediate hand of God, but both sorts died of the plague, the word being used, as often it is, for the sword, or hand, or stroke of God.
