Numbers 22:16-17

Context
22:16 And they came to Balaam and said to him, “Thus says Balak son of Zippor: ‘Please do not let anything hinder you from coming 1  to me. 22:17 For I will honor you greatly, 2  and whatever you tell me I will do. So come, put a curse on this nation for me.’”

1 tn The infinitive construct is the object of the preposition.

2 tn The construction uses the Piel infinitive כַּבֵּד (kabbed) to intensify the verb, which is the Piel imperfect/cohortative אֲכַבֶּדְךָ (’akhabbedkha). The great honor could have been wealth, prestige, or position.
