Numbers 24:1-9

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.
