NET © Notes

tn The infinitive absolute follows the finite verb in the Hebrew text and indicates continuation or repetition of the action. Balaam pronounced several oracles of blessing over Israel (see Num 23-24).

tn Heb “blessing.” Balaam’s “blessings” were actually prophecies of how God would prosper Israel.

tn Heb “hand.”
