Text Appearing Before Image:
The Moabites in their poltting against the Israelites had been joined by the Midianites, Moses' former friends. With both of these people, the Israelites had desired to be friendly; because both were traditionally allied to Abraham. Now, however, Moses saw that his people could not live beside these idolaters and preserve their own faith. The Moabites had fled from the immediate neighborhood; Moses dispatched against the Midianites an armed force under the lead of the resolute Phinehas. Only twelve thousand men were sent on this expedition. Yet it was enough; the Midianites gave but feeble resistance and then fled. Balaam, the treacherous prophet, was among them, and was slain. All the wealth of the cities of Midian, all their herds of cattle, even their women and children, were captured by the Israelites and brought back to Moses. Most amazing of all, of the twelve thousand warriors who achieved this victory, not a single one was slain. When the poor captives were brought before Moses, he was wroth that his followers should thus be exposed to further intercourse with idolaters, and gave the hardest, sternest order of his whole career; only the very young and innocent women were spared, all the others were slain, lest they corrupt the people of Israel. 11-90

Copyright, 1904, by M. de Brunoff. Reuben and Gad Demand lands
"And they came near unto him and said, We will build sheepfolds here for our cattle." —Num., 32, 16.
WHEN the entire region east of Jordan had been thus swept clear of enemies, Moses prepared to send his people across the river into Palestine itself. But he had first to settle with the tribes of Reuben and Gad. These tribes had a very great multitude of cattle, and the lands east of Jordan were pasture lands, just suited for vast herds to wander over. Therefore the chiefs of Reuben and Gad decided that they did not care for a share of the promised land, they were well content to stay in this region already conquered. With much hesitation they suggested this to Moses. At first the servant of God was horrified, for he thought this meant another rebellion and disobedience to God; but the chiefs assured him they had no thought of disobedience and no fear of following him. They offered to go themselves
