Numbers 25:9

And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.
All Commentaries on Numbers 25:9 Go To Numbers 25

Tertullian of Carthage

AD 220
As far as that goes, we too have examples from this same past in favor of our own way of thinking, examples of a judgment on fornication which was not only not remiss but rather immediately executed. It is quite enough, I should think, that so great a number of the chosen people, twentyfour thousand, perished at one stroke after they had fornicated with the daughters of Midian. I prefer, however, for the glory of Christ, to derive ecclesiastical discipline from Christ. –.
