Numbers 25:11

Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest,
&c.] His descent and genealogy is observed as before, partly to show that he was not a private person, but a man of public authority that did the above fact; perhaps one of the judges that Moses ordered to slay every man his man, and therefore what he did by the order of the supreme magistrate; and partly to show that he was heir apparent to the office of high priest, who in course was to succeed in it; nor should this action of his hinder it, but rather serve to secure and confirm it to him:

hath turned away my wrath from the children of Israel;
caused the effects of it to cease, by slaying the two persons, as before related:

while he was zealous for my sake among you;
for the glory of God, the honour of his law, the credit of religion, and the good of his people, which is a good cause to be zealously affected in, (Galatians 4:18) in which he was a type of Christ, whose zeal for the house of God, for the doctrine, discipline, and worship of it, for the salvation of his people, and the glory of God thereby, ate him up, (Psalms 69:9) as well as in his turning away wrath from Israel; sin is the cause of wrath, and for it is revealed from heaven; the people of God are deserving of it as others; but Christ has bore it for them, and so has delivered them from it and all the effects of it, and they are secure from its coming upon them:

that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy;
by the plague sent among them, being so highly provoked with their shocking abominations.
