Ps 106:31

106:31 counted to him as righteousness. When Israel took the fateful steps toward idolatry, Phinehas took a violent step to bring Israel back to the way of God. As a result, God made a covenant with his family to give them the priesthood. Similar language is used in connection with the covenant promises given to Abraham (Gen. 15:6) and inherited by the church (Rom. 4:3).
