Numbers 23:1--24:25

And Balaam
<01109>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balak
<01111>_,
Build
<01129> (8798)
me here seven
<07651>
altars
<04196>_,
and prepare
<03559> (8685)
me here seven
<07651>
oxen
<06499>
and seven
<07651>
rams
<0352>_.
And Balak
<01111>
did
<06213> (8799)
as Balaam
<01109>
had spoken
<01696> (8765)_;
and Balak
<01111>
and Balaam
<01109>
offered
<05927> (8686)
on [every] altar
<04196>
a bullock
<06499>
and a ram
<0352>_.
And Balaam
<01109>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balak
<01111>_,
Stand
<03320> (8690)
by thy burnt offering
<05930>_,
and I will go
<03212> (8799)_:
peradventure the LORD
<03068>
will come
<07136> (8735)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
me: and whatsoever
<01697>
he sheweth
<07200> (8686)
me I will tell
<05046> (8689)
thee. And he went
<03212> (8799)
to an high place
<08205>_.
{to an...: or, solitary}
And God
<0430>
met
<07136> (8735)
Balaam
<01109>_:
and he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, I have prepared
<06186> (8804)
seven
<07651>
altars
<04196>_,
and I have offered
<05927> (8686)
upon [every] altar
<04196>
a bullock
<06499>
and a ram
<0352>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
put
<07760> (8799)
a word
<01697>
in Balaam's
<01109>
mouth
<06310>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Return
<07725> (8798)
unto Balak
<01111>_,
and thus thou shalt speak
<01696> (8762)_.
And he returned
<07725> (8799)
unto him, and, lo, he stood
<05324> (8737)
by his burnt sacrifice
<05930>_,
he, and all the princes
<08269>
of Moab
<04124>_.
And he took up
<05375> (8799)
his parable
<04912>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Balak
<01111>
the king
<04428>
of Moab
<04124>
hath brought
<05148> (8686)
me from Aram
<0758>_,
out of the mountains
<02042>
of the east
<06924>_,
[saying], Come
<03212> (8798)_,
curse
<0779> (8798)
me Jacob
<03290>_,
and come
<03212> (8798)_,
defy
<02194> (8798)
Israel
<03478>_.
How
<04100>
shall I curse
<05344> (8799)_,
whom God
<0410>
hath not cursed
<06895> (8804)_?
or how shall I defy
<02194> (8799)_,
[whom] the LORD
<03068>
hath not defied
<02194> (8804)_?
For from the top
<07218>
of the rocks
<06697>
I see
<07200> (8799)
him, and from the hills
<01389>
I behold
<07789> (8799)
him: lo, the people
<05971>
shall dwell
<07931> (8799)
alone
<0910>_,
and shall not be reckoned
<02803> (8691)
among the nations
<01471>_.
Who can count
<04487> (8804)
the dust
<06083>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
and the number
<04557>
of the fourth
<07255>
[part] of Israel
<03478>_?
Let me die
<04191> (8799) <05315>
the death
<04194>
of the righteous
<03477>_,
and let my last
<0319>
end be like his! {me: Heb. my soul, or, my life}
And Balak
<01111>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balaam
<01109>_,
What hast thou done
<06213> (8804)
unto me? I took
<03947> (8804)
thee to curse
<06895> (8800)
mine enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and, behold, thou hast blessed
<01288> (8765)
[them] altogether
<01288> (8763)_.
And he answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Must I not take heed
<08104> (8799)
to speak
<01696> (8763)
that which the LORD
<03068>
hath put
<07760> (8799)
in my mouth
<06310>_?
And Balak
<01111>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Come
<03212> (8798)_,
I pray thee, with me unto another
<0312>
place
<04725>_,
from whence thou mayest see
<07200> (8799)
them: thou shalt see
<07200> (8799)
but
<0657>
the utmost
<07097>
part of them, and shalt not see
<07200> (8799)
them all: and curse
<06895> (8798)
me them from thence.
And he brought
<03947> (8799)
him into the field
<07704>
of Zophim
<06839> (8677) <06822> (8802)_,
to the top
<07218>
of Pisgah
<06449>_,
and built
<01129> (8799)
seven
<07651>
altars
<04196>_,
and offered
<05927> (8686)
a bullock
<06499>
and a ram
<0352>
on [every] altar
<04196>_.
{Pisgah: or, the hill}
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balak
<01111>_,
Stand
<03320> (8690)
here
<03541>
by thy burnt offering
<05930>_,
while I meet
<07136> (8735)
[the LORD] yonder
<03541>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
met
<07136> (8735)
Balaam
<01109>_,
and put
<07760> (8799)
a word
<01697>
in his mouth
<06310>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go again
<07725> (8798)
unto Balak
<01111>_,
and say
<01696> (8762)
thus.
And when he came
<0935> (8799)
to him, behold, he stood
<05324> (8737)
by his burnt offering
<05930>_,
and the princes
<08269>
of Moab
<04124>
with him. And Balak
<01111>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, What hath the LORD
<03068>
spoken
<01696> (8765)_?
And he took up
<05375> (8799)
his parable
<04912>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Rise up
<06965> (8798)_,
Balak
<01111>_,
and hear
<08085> (8798)_;
hearken
<0238> (8685)
unto me, thou son
<01121>
of Zippor
<06834>_:
God
<0410>
[is] not a man
<0376>_,
that he should lie
<03576> (8762)_;
neither the son
<01121>
of man
<0120>_,
that he should repent
<05162> (8691)_:
hath he said
<0559> (8804)_,
and shall he not do
<06213> (8799)
[it]? or hath he spoken
<01696> (8765)_,
and shall he not make it good
<06965> (8686)_?
Behold, I have received
<03947> (8804)
[commandment] to bless
<01288> (8763)_:
and he hath blessed
<01288> (8765)_;
and I cannot reverse
<07725> (8686)
it.
He hath not beheld
<05027> (8689)
iniquity
<0205>
in Jacob
<03290>_,
neither hath he seen
<07200> (8804)
perverseness
<05999>
in Israel
<03478>_:
the LORD
<03068>
his God
<0430>
[is] with him, and the shout
<08643>
of a king
<04428>
[is] among them.
God
<0410>
brought them out
<03318> (8688)
of Egypt
<04714>_;
he hath as it were the strength
<08443>
of an unicorn
<07214>_.
Surely [there is] no enchantment
<05173>
against Jacob
<03290>_,
neither [is there] any divination
<07081>
against Israel
<03478>_:
according to this time
<06256>
it shall be said
<0559> (8735)
of Jacob
<03290>
and of Israel
<03478>_,
What hath God
<0410>
wrought
<06466> (8804)_!
{against: or, in}
Behold, the people
<05971>
shall rise up
<06965> (8799)
as a great lion
<03833>_,
and lift up
<05375> (8691)
himself as a young lion
<0738>_:
he shall not lie down
<07901> (8799)
until he eat
<0398> (8799)
[of] the prey
<02964>_,
and drink
<08354> (8799)
the blood
<01818>
of the slain
<02491>_.
And Balak
<01111>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balaam
<01109>_,
Neither curse
<05344> (8799)
them at all
<06895> (8800)_,
nor bless
<01288> (8762)
them at all
<01288> (8763)_.
But Balaam
<01109>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balak
<01111>_,
Told
<01696> (8765)
not I thee, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
All that the LORD
<03068>
speaketh
<01696> (8762)_,
that I must do
<06213> (8799)_?
And Balak
<01111>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balaam
<01109>_,
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
I pray thee, I will bring
<03947> (8799)
thee unto another
<0312>
place
<04725>_;
peradventure it will please
<03474> (8799) <05869>
God
<0430>
that thou mayest curse
<06895> (8804)
me them from thence.
And Balak
<01111>
brought
<03947> (8799)
Balaam
<01109>
unto the top
<07218>
of Peor
<06465>_,
that looketh
<08259> (8737)
toward
<06440>
Jeshimon
<03452>_.
And Balaam
<01109>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balak
<01111>_,
Build
<01129> (8798)
me here seven
<07651>
altars
<04196>_,
and prepare
<03559> (8685)
me here seven
<07651>
bullocks
<06499>
and seven
<07651>
rams
<0352>_.
And Balak
<01111>
did
<06213> (8799)
as Balaam
<01109>
had said
<0559> (8804)_,
and offered
<05927> (8686)
a bullock
<06499>
and a ram
<0352>
on [every] altar
<04196>_.
And when Balaam
<01109>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that it pleased
<05869> <02895> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
to bless
<01288> (8763)
Israel
<03478>_,
he went
<01980> (8804)
not, as at other times
<06471>_,
to seek
<07125> (8800)
for enchantments
<05173>_,
but he set
<07896> (8799)
his face
<06440>
toward the wilderness
<04057>_.
{to seek...: Heb. to the meeting of}
And Balaam
<01109>
lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his eyes
<05869>_,
and he saw
<07200> (8799)
Israel
<03478>
abiding
<07931> (8802)
[in his tents] according to their tribes
<07626>_;
and the spirit
<07307>
of God
<0430>
came upon him.
And he took up
<05375> (8799)
his parable
<04912>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Balaam
<01109>
the son
<01121>
of Beor
<01160>
hath said
<05002> (8803)_,
and the man
<01397>
whose eyes
<05869>
are open
<08365> (8803)
hath said
<05002> (8803)_:
{whose...: Heb. who had his eyes shut, but now opened}
He hath said
<05002> (8803)_,
which heard
<08085> (8802)
the words
<0561>
of God
<0410>_,
which saw
<02372> (8799)
the vision
<04236>
of the Almighty
<07706>_,
falling
<05307> (8802)
[into a trance], but having his eyes
<05869>
open
<01540> (8803)_:
How goodly
<02895> (8804)
are thy tents
<0168>_,
O Jacob
<03290>_,
[and] thy tabernacles
<04908>_,
O Israel
<03478>_!
As the valleys
<05158>
are they spread forth
<05186> (8738)_,
as gardens
<01593>
by the river's side
<05104>_,
as the trees of lign aloes
<0174>
which the LORD
<03068>
hath planted
<05193> (8804)_,
[and] as cedar trees
<0730>
beside the waters
<04325>_.
He shall pour
<05140> (0)
the water
<04325>
out
<05140> (8799)
of his buckets
<01805>_,
and his seed
<02233>
[shall be] in many
<07227>
waters
<04325>_,
and his king
<04428>
shall be higher
<07311> (8799)
than Agag
<090>_,
and his kingdom
<04438>
shall be exalted
<05375> (8691)_.
God
<0410>
brought him forth
<03318> (8688)
out of Egypt
<04714>_;
he hath as it were the strength
<08443>
of an unicorn
<07214>_:
he shall eat up
<0398> (8799)
the nations
<01471>
his enemies
<06862>_,
and shall break
<01633> (8762)
their bones
<06106>_,
and pierce
<04272> (8799)
[them] through with his arrows
<02671>_.
He couched
<03766> (8804)_,
he lay down
<07901> (8804)
as a lion
<0738>_,
and as a great lion
<03833>_:
who shall stir him up
<06965> (8686)_?
Blessed
<01288> (8803)
[is] he that blesseth
<01288> (8764)
thee, and cursed
<0779> (8803)
[is] he that curseth
<0779> (8802)
thee.
And Balak's
<01111>
anger
<0639>
was kindled
<02734> (8799)
against Balaam
<01109>_,
and he smote
<05606> (0)
his hands
<03709>
together
<05606> (8799)_:
and Balak
<01111>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balaam
<01109>_,
I called
<07121> (8804)
thee to curse
<06895> (8800)
mine enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and, behold, thou hast altogether
<01288> (8763)
blessed
<01288> (8765)
[them] these three
<07969>
times
<06471>_.
Therefore now flee
<01272> (8798)
thou to thy place
<04725>_:
I thought
<0559> (8804)
to promote
<03513> (0)
thee unto great
<03513> (8763)
honour
<03513> (8762)_;
but, lo, the LORD
<03068>
hath kept thee back
<04513> (8804)
from honour
<03519>_.
And Balaam
<01109>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Balak
<01111>_,
Spake
<01696> (8765)
I not also to thy messengers
<04397>
which thou sentest
<07971> (8804)
unto me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
If Balak
<01111>
would give
<05414> (8799)
me his house
<01004>
full
<04393>
of silver
<03701>
and gold
<02091>_,
I cannot
<03201> (8799)
go beyond
<05674> (8800)
the commandment
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to do
<06213> (8800)
[either] good
<02896>
or bad
<07451>
of mine own mind
<03820>_;
[but] what the LORD
<03068>
saith
<01696> (8762)_,
that will I speak
<01696> (8762)_?
And now, behold, I go
<01980> (8802)
unto my people
<05971>_:
come
<03212> (8798)
[therefore, and] I will advertise
<03289> (8799)
thee what this people
<05971>
shall do
<06213> (8799)
to thy people
<05971>
in the latter
<0319>
days
<03117>_.
And he took up
<05375> (8799)
his parable
<04912>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Balaam
<01109>
the son
<01121>
of Beor
<01160>
hath said
<05002> (8803)_,
and the man
<01397>
whose eyes
<05869>
are open
<08365> (8803)
hath said
<05002> (8803)_:
He hath said
<05002> (8803)_,
which heard
<08085> (8802)
the words
<0561>
of God
<0410>_,
and knew
<03045> (8802)
the knowledge
<01847>
of the most High
<05945>_,
[which] saw
<02372> (8799)
the vision
<04236>
of the Almighty
<07706>_,
falling
<05307> (8802)
[into a trance], but having his eyes
<05869>
open
<01540> (8803)_:
I shall see
<07200> (8799)
him, but not now: I shall behold
<07789> (8799)
him, but not nigh
<07138>_:
there shall come
<01869> (8804)
a Star
<03556>
out of Jacob
<03290>_,
and a Sceptre
<07626>
shall rise
<06965> (8804)
out of Israel
<03478>_,
and shall smite
<04272> (8804)
the corners
<06285>
of Moab
<04124>_,
and destroy
<06979> (8773)
all the children
<01121>
of Sheth
<08352> (8676) <08351>_.
{smite...: or, smite through the princes of}
And Edom
<0123>
shall be a possession
<03424>_,
Seir
<08165>
also shall be a possession
<03424>
for his enemies
<0341> (8802)_;
and Israel
<03478>
shall do
<06213> (8802)
valiantly
<02428>_.
Out of Jacob
<03290>
shall come he that shall have dominion
<07287> (8799)_,
and shall destroy
<06> (8689)
him that remaineth
<08300>
of the city
<05892>_.
And when he looked
<07200> (8799)
on Amalek
<06002>_,
he took up
<05375> (8799)
his parable
<04912>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Amalek
<06002>
[was] the first
<07225>
of the nations
<01471>_;
but his latter
<0319>
end [shall be] that he perish
<08>
for ever
<05703>_.
{the nations: the nations that warred against Israel} {that...: or, even to destruction}
And he looked
<07200> (8799)
on the Kenites
<07017>_,
and took up
<05375> (8799)
his parable
<04912>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Strong
<0386>
is thy dwellingplace
<04186>_,
and thou puttest
<07760> (8798)
thy nest
<07064>
in a rock
<05553>_.
Nevertheless the Kenite
<07014>
shall
<0518>
be wasted
<01197> (8763)_,
until Asshur
<0804>
shall carry thee away captive
<07617> (8799)_.
{the Kenite: Heb. Kain} {until...: or, how long shall it be ere Asshur carry thee away captive}
And he took up
<05375> (8799)
his parable
<04912>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Alas
<0188>_,
who shall live
<02421> (8799)
when God
<0410>
doeth
<07760> (8800)
this!
And ships
<06716>
[shall come] from the coast
<03027>
of Chittim
<03794>_,
and shall afflict
<06031> (8765)
Asshur
<0804>_,
and shall afflict
<06031> (8765)
Eber
<05677>_,
and he also shall perish
<08>
for ever
<05703>_.
And Balaam
<01109>
rose up
<06965> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
and returned
<07725> (8799)
to his place
<04725>_:
and Balak
<01111>
also went
<01980> (8804)
his way
<01870>_.
