sacrifices of the dead

Psalms 106:28

106:28 sacrifices of the dead. The “joining” of the Israelites to the licentious idol worship of the Moabites took place in the time of Moses (Numbers 25:1-3), and included the eating of sacrifices offered to the false gods of the Moabites, especially Baal. See note on Numbers 25:3. Although not mentioned in the Numbers account, this inspired commentary in the psalm intimates that these orgies, which included the sacrificing of infants (Psalm 106:37), may even have involved cannibalism. The terrible judgment of God as a result (Numbers 25:3-9) is understandable.
