The new atitude towards Midain
After this treachery by Midian God did demand that Israel harass Midian(Numbers Chapter 26) for this action of seducing Jewish men. Pincheos was giving a covenant of peace for killing the two leaders of this whole episode both the man and the woman. Which is interesting and just shows that true peace requires not showing compassion to those who try to push immoral behavior which of course they are doing to create conflict.
