IS IT GOD'S WORD?

By Joseph Wheless

SEGMENT FROM CHAPTER 5: THE RAPE OF MIDIAN

And when the meek and holy Man of God saw all the multitude of female captives alive, "Moses was wroth with the officers of the Host," and in his holy wrath he demanded, "Have ye saved all the women alive?" (Num. xxxi, 14-15). Then, in the name of his God, the Merciful, he gave this bloody order,- an order which if given by an Apache War-Chief crazed by Christian Fire-water, would have damned him and his Tribe and the "Great Spirit" of his Tribe to execration forever; - in the name of Yahveh Moses commanded: "Now, therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves" (v. 17) So records the Holy Word of Yahveh, writ by "holy men of old as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." So the Chosen of Yahveh, at Yahveh's holy command, to the eternal glory of God, straightway put into pious execution this holy command of their God, and in holy zeal butchered some 68,000 women and young children; then these "peculiar treasures unto Yahveh" took the remaining 32,000 tender young virgins to glut their hallowed lusts upon in God- ordained rape!" Verily, as the Psalmist sings "the commandment of Yahveh is pure, enlightening the eyes" (Ps. 8). And Yahveh got his fair share of the-accursed booty, human and animal alike (vv. 36-42).
