Israel rebelled during the wilderness wanderings often, but many times they also obeyed the Lord, as Moses reminded them,

“Your eyes have seen what the LORD did at Baal Peor; for the LORD your God has destroyed from among you all the men who followed Baal of Peor. But you who held fast to the LORD your God are alive today, every one of you” (Deuteronomy 4.3–4).

Moses reminded them of what the Lord did to those who corrupted themselves at Baal Peor, but he also reminded them that the current generation remained loyal to the Lord.
