Ban those who hired Balaam from the assembly for 10 generations

Deuteronomy 23:3-4 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter the assembly of the LORD; even to the tenth generation none of his descendants shall enter the assembly of the LORD forever, because they did not meet you with bread and water on the road when you came out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you.


I'm sure they had to have done a lot more than what this verse mentions in order to have an almost lifetime ban from being a part of the congregation.

Before you go judging what the Bible does or does not say I recommend you at least learn how to read the text in its historical and cultural context. To read the Bible and try to place every event in today's context is ignorant and only shows that those who are doing so have no idea what they are speaking of. Be careful when you mock what you do not understand.
