Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 4:3-4

_ _ Your eyes have seen what the Lord did because of Baal-peor ... the Lord thy God hath destroyed them from among you — It appears that the pestilence and the sword of justice overtook only the guilty in that affair (Numbers 25:1-9) while the rest of the people were spared. The allusion to that recent and appalling judgment was seasonably made as a powerful dissuasive against idolatry, and the fact mentioned was calculated to make a deep impression on people who knew and felt the truth of it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Deuteronomy 4:3

Your (d) eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor: for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed them from among you.

(d) God's judgments executed on other idolaters ought to serve for our instruction, read (Numbers 25:3-4).

what the:

Numbers 25:1-9 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. ... And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.
Numbers 31:16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.
Joshua 22:17 [Is] the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are not cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD,
Psalms 106:28-29 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. ... Thus they provoked [him] to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.
Hosea 9:10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: [but] they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto [that] shame; and [their] abominations were according as they loved.

for all the men:
It appears from this appeal, that the pestilence, as well as the sword of the magistrates, singled out the guilty persons and spared the rest (
Psalms 91:6-8 [Nor] for the pestilence [that] walketh in darkness; [nor] for the destruction [that] wasteth at noonday. ... Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
). The legislator, in order to deter the Jews from idolatry, alludes to this fact, but he notices no circumstance but one, which, though in the original narrative was not stated, was infinitely the most important to advert to on this occasion; but which no persons, but spectators of the fact, and perfectly acquainted with every individual concerned in it, could possibly feel the truth of.
Numbers 26:64 But among these there was not a man of them whom Moses and Aaron the priest numbered, when they numbered the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai.
