Numbers 23:1-2

Context
Balaam Blesses Israel

23:1 1 Balaam said to Balak, “Build me seven altars here, and prepare for me here seven bulls and seven rams.” 23:2 So Balak did just as Balaam had said. Balak and Balaam then offered on each 2  altar a bull and a ram.

Numbers 23:4

Context

23:4 Then God met Balaam, who 3  said to him, “I have prepared seven altars, and I have offered on each altar a bull and a ram.”

Numbers 23:29

Context
23:29 Then Balaam said to Balak, “Build seven altars here for me, and prepare seven bulls and seven rams.”

1 sn The first part of Balaam’s activity ends in disaster for Balak – he blesses Israel. The chapter falls into four units: the first prophecy (vv. 1-10), the relocation (vv. 11-17), the second prophecy (vv. 18-24), and a further location (vv. 25-30).

2 tn The Hebrew text has “on the altar,” but since there were seven of each animal and seven altars, the implication is that this means on each altar.

3 tn The relative pronoun is added here in place of the conjunction to clarify that Balaam is speaking to God and not vice versa.
